H7N9 avian flu infects 6 more in China, nears record

Officials reported six more H7N9 avian influenza infections in five different provinces in China, signaling an ongoing surge of activity what will likely make the current fifth wave of illnesses the largest since the virus was first detected in humans in 2013.

Three of the cases were noted today in an update from Hong Kong's Centre for Health Protection (CHP). The patients are a 54-year-old man from Henan province and two men, ages 55 and 75, in Sichuan province.

The three other cases were reported in provincial health department notices or China state media reports translated and posted by *******, an infectious disease news message board. They involve a 75-year-old woman in Zhejiang province, a 47-year-old woman in Hunan province, and a fatal case involving a 3-year-old girl in Yunnan province who apparently was infected in Jiangxi province. H7N9 infections in children are unusual; most illnesses have been reported in adults, especially those who have underlying health conditions.

China current wave of H7N9 activity began earlier than usual in November with 6 cases, surging to 106 in December and 183 in January. Combined with cases reported so far in February, the country now has at least 302 cases for the current season, which is approaching the record total of 319 reported for the second wave that occurred in the winter of 2013-14.
