Chicken off the menu in some of Karachi’s five star hotels?

 

ChickenAmid mounting fears following a report of outbreak of bird flu virus in Pakistan, some five star hotels in Karachi are taking time out to re-assess the situation. Hotel Pearl Continental áhas brought the purchase of chickens to a halt and put áthe task in áthe hands of the hotel’s veterinary doctors. Marriott Hotel Karachi áare re-assessing their menus áas concern mounts, and the áSherton Hotel Azhar’s Purchase Director has suggested that the government ban the sale of chickens in Karachi if (or perhaps, when) the bird flu virus hits the city. All this despite the World Health Organization’s assurance that eating well-cooked poultry is safe due to the virus’ sensitivity to temperature.
