H7N9 death reported in northwestern China

China has reported its second human H7N9 avian influenza infection of the season, in a 72-year-old man from Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region who died from his illness, Hong Kong's Center for Health Protection (CHP) said in a statement today, based on information from the mainland.

The man from Korla City died on Jan 10, and the investigation into the source of his illness found that he had contact with live poultry before he got sick. Xinjiang is in far northwestern China, and Korla City s in the central part of the region.

So far only one other case has been reported in China's sixth wave of H7N9 activity, that of a 64-year-old man from Yunnan province who had contact with dead poultry. His case was reported in early December. The pace of H7N9 illnesses is down steeply from this time last year, when more than 120 cases had already been reported. The fifth wave was marked by an unusual early surge of infections and brought the largest number of cases, compared with previous seasons.

Pretty late in the flu season to see serious cases begin to show. Timing's getting kind of wacky with this strain - I wonder how far into the warmer weather this one will last?
