Recently, a Weibo post has gone viral among netizens, joking that Chinese people could do nothing to protect themselves since the bird flu and smog weather occur at the same time:
“How to prevent from H7N9 (bird flu)?”
Expert: “Keep windows open, let fresh air in.”
“How to prevent from PM2.5 (smog)?”
Expert: “Close all the windows, do not go outside.”
“Wait so should I open the windows or not?!”
Expert:”That depends on how you would prefer to die…”
By retweeting the post, netizens are asking the government to take care of the two serious issues as soon as possible.
