Under discussion was a plan by the Office of Shanghai Patriotic Health Campaign Committee to control the spread of vector-borne infectious diseases during Expo. Some 20 vector controlling teams have been set up and the office is also setting up inspection spots to monitor the situation in and around the Expo site, hotels, hospitals, supermarkets, key tourist spots, and both city airports.
