A bundle of live chickens gets a quick squirt of disinfectant on its way into the poultry section of the Long Bien market in Hanoi, Vietnam. At "wet" markets like this one, where chickens and ducks are sold and slaughtered on the spot, flu viruses can spread among the live birds and infect customers. The perfunctory spray is unlikely to do much good against a virus that lives in the birds' lungs and intestines. In any case, vendors headed into the market the day this picture was taken often bypassed the disinfection station.
