Yushu prevents disease breakout
Paramilitary policemen disinfect and sterilize the ruins of Wednesday's devastating earthquake to prevent the outbreak of a deadly disease spread by rodents in Gyegu Township in the quake-hit Yushu county of northwest China's Qinghai province, April 18, 2010. A team of 16 quarantine workers and 10 rodent plague specialists, armed with disinfection vehicles and tons of medicines and vaccines, have been deployed to the quake-affected area. The 7.1-magnitude earthquake increased the chance of a plague outbreak as rodents emerged from their burrows earlier than previous earthquakes. [Photo/Xinhua]
