New H7N9 avian flu case reported in northeastern China

Hong Kong's Centre for Health Protection (CHP) today reported a new case of H7N9 avian flu in Liaoning province, further evidence that the virus has not disappeared during the summer.

A 54-year-old male poultry breeder fell ill Sep 3 and was admitted to a hospital with severe pneumonia. The man, from Tieling, a city of 3 million people, tested positive for H7N9 influenza last week. Liaoning province is in northeastern China and borders North Korea.

The CHP cautioned, "Travellers to the Mainland or other affected areas must avoid visiting wet markets, live poultry markets or farms. They should be alert to the presence of backyard poultry when visiting relatives and friends. They should also avoid purchasing live or freshly slaughtered poultry, and avoid touching poultry/birds or their droppings. They should strictly observe personal and hand hygiene when visiting any place with live poultry."

The new illness raises the number of H7N9 cases in the fifth and by far largest outbreak wave to 758 cases. At least 281 of the infections were fatal. Though cases have slowed since a sudden rise last fall that lasted into spring, China continues to report sporadic cases.
