Via Reuters: Hong Kong confirms first death from H7N9 bird flu. Excerpt:
An 80-year-old man infected with the H7N9 bird flu virus has died in Hong Kong, the government said on Thursday, in the first such death in the city after the virus surfaced in early December.
The man, the second person in Hong Kong to be diagnosed with the virus strain, lived in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen and had eaten poultry there, media reported.
The H7N9 strain was first reported in humans in February in mainland China, and has infected at least 139 people in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, killing more than 40.
Hong Kong's Centre for Health Protection still has nothing on this death, but I expect it will within a few hours. Mike Coston has a good post on it, and another post on CHP's epidemiological update on H7N9.
