CHP notified of human case of avian influenza A(H7N9) in Yunnan
****************************************************
     The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health is today (December 2) monitoring a notification from the National Health and Family Planning Commission that an additional human case of avian influenza A(H7N9) was recorded from November 24 to December 1 in Yunnan, and strongly urged the public to maintain strict personal, food and environmental hygiene both locally and during travel.

     The 64-year-old male patient in Kunming, known to have contact with dead poultry, had onset on November 21 and was in a serious condition.

     "This is the first human case reported in the Mainland since October 2017. As winter approaches, based on the seasonal pattern of avian influenza (H7N9) viruses, their activity in the Mainland is expected to increase," a spokesman for the CHP said.
