Via Guangzhou Ribao: H10N8 has come! First patient is now Jiangxi, died on admission week. But the headline is misleading; apart from quoting Dr. Zhong Nanshan on using Tamiflu as soon as H10N8 is suspected, the report is mostly about the second H7N9 case in Yangjiang. Excerpt from a Google translation:

While this report doesn't mention today's new case in Shenzhen, it includes a lot of information beyond the usual bare-bones Xinhua reports. This is an encouraging development; I'll be spending more time on local Chinese media sites in search of more news.
