MOSCOW, April 12 (Itar-Tass) - The chief of the Rospotrebnadzor federal agency for public health control, Gennady Onishchenko, asks Russians not to visit some Chinese regions due to the spread of H7N9 flu.

These are the provinces of Shanghai, Zhejiang and Jiangsu, he said.

"We are concerned over the spread of H7N9 bird flu. According to the official data, 33 cases among people are reported in China, and nine of the people have died," Onishchenko noted. No cases of spread of the disease from one human to another were reported, he said.

"I address our fellow citizens who have no pressing necessity to go to the regions of China. They should not travel there until the situation returns to normal," the Rospotrebnadzor head said.

Russia is a natural place for birds' nesting. Several tens of millions of birds fly to the country. In connection with the expected migration of birds, the possibility of the virus appearance in the county is not ruled out, Onishchenko noted.
