Live-poultry market workers (N = 73) Community residents (N = 152)
Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) 60 (82.2 %) 112 (73.7 %) 0.159
HPAI H5N2 47 (64.4 %) 83 (54.6 %) 0.164

  1. The data within the percentages of community residents related to the willingness to take preventive measures for the selected infectious diseases served as the reference group in this Table 9
  2. HPAI Highly pathogenic avian influenza
  3. LPAI Lowly pathogenic avian influenza
  4. *p-value <0.05 by chi-square test
  5. aNumbers in this table indicate how many respondents indicated they were willing to take preventive measures against each disease listed. Respondents were given a list and were free to select any or all of the infectious diseases (that they would protect themselves from)
