H7N9 avian influenza infection reported in Guangdong province

One human H7N9 avian influenza case was reported in Zhongshan City, Guangdong province, China, according to a Guangdong Provincial Health and Family Planning Commission news release Saturday (computer translated).


Surveillance showed no evidence of H7N9 virus changes in human infectivity, virulence and interpersonal transmission.

Experts suggest that the overall mortality rate of H7N9 patients is about 30-40%, annual winter and spring season for the susceptible season of H7N9 and other avian flu. The public should avoid contact with dead poultry in their daily life and try to avoid direct contact with live poultry.

People in rural areas should not buy and keep live poultry without quarantine certificate from floating poultry vendors. Those with history of poultry exposure and fever and respiratory symptoms, should wear a mask, report as soon as possible to the local medical institutions, and take the initiative to inform the doctor of poultry exposure history.
