Hong Kong on flu alert

Three children with flu-like symptoms have died, and schools across Hong Kong have been closed down early for the holidays.  In the wake of SARS, Hong Kong authorities are not taking any chances this time.  And there has been a run on surgical masks in Hong Kong stores.   Nevertheless, scientists say the new flu strain is not especially dangerous, and the cause of the deaths remains uncertain.
