Fatal H7N9 case reported in China

A new H7N9 avian influenza infection has been reported in China, involving a man from the Xiangxi autonomous region of Hunan province, according to a Hunan Center for Disease Control statement translated and posted by ***********, an infectious disease news message board.

Following an unprecedented number of cases in the fifth wave of H7N9 activity, China is now reporting sporadic cases, and the new illness is the first since Aug 4.

The 48-year-old man from the city of Jishou, Xiangxi's capital, got sick on Aug 9 and died from his illness. He worked in waste collection and has an underlying health condition. Xiangxi is in the western part of Hunan province.

The latest case lifts China's fifth-wave total to 753 cases, when added to the total listed today in the Hong Kong Center for Health Protection's weekly avian influenza report. At least 246 deaths have been reported.
