Thanks to Mike Coston for alerting me to Novel Infectious Diseases, an excellent blog run by Laidback Al—a longtime Flublogian. He posted a major item on January 1: A Review of Human Influenza A(H5N1) Cases in 2013. The abstract:
In 2013, 38 human cases of Influenza A(H5N1) were reported from around the world. This number represents an 18% increase over the number of reported cases in 2012. Six countries reported cases in 2013, Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Egypt, Indonesia, and Vietnam. Cambodia reported about 71% (27) of all cases reported in 2013.
In 2013, children younger than 10 years old represent about 63% of all cases. No human clusters were reported in 2013. Relative to other countries, Cambodia experienced the greatest percentage increase in human infections in a short period of time. The continued low frequency of reported infections does not eliminate H5N1 as a pandemic threat.
