(Avian flu) 419 infections since November, situation 'abnormal'

Hong Kong | Feb 16, 16:43

The number of human H7N9 avian influenza infections reported in the mainland has soared since the end of last year, with 419 cases recorded since last November, the Centre for Health Protection said.
The number of cases in this wave so far has been much higher than that in the same period last winter. This shows that the situation is abnormal. Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan also found cases imported from Guangdong, a spokesman.
"According to the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about 90 per cent of the patients in the Mainland reported exposure to live poultry, mostly with exposure to live poultry markets. There was also an increase in environmental contamination with H7N9 virus as reflected by the positive rate of environmental samples collected from LPMs or other live poultry-related environments in affected provinces," the spokesman said.
