H7N9 avian flu sickens 5 more in China, 1 fatally

China reported five H7N9 avian flu infections this week, another sign that illnesses are tapering off as the country heads into summer. This week's total is down from 12 cases reported last week.

A regular update from Hong Kong's Centre for Health Protection (CHP) said the newest cases were reported from Jun 9 to Jun 15 and that one was fatal. All patients are adults, and four of the five are men. Illness onsets range from Apr 25 to Jun 6, and three patients had known exposure to poultry or poultry markets.

The latest cases were in Beijing and four provinces: Guangxi, Guizhou, Hunan and Zhejiang.

China is experiencing its fifth and biggest wave of H7N9 activity, which began in October. So far this season the country has reported at least 739 cases, at least 206 of them fatal.
