Thanks to Lucie Lecomte for sending me the link to this Chinese-language report from info.51.ca: 20-year-old Chinese girl returned dye H5N1 death. The Google translation of an excerpt:
Federal Health Minister Rona Ambrose confirmed the first case of human infection in Canada appears H5N1 avian influenza cases, the deceased was a 20-year-old Alberta girl, she at December 27, 2013 from Beijing China flight back, she was already on the plane headache, fever and general weakness symptoms, January 1 hospitalized, seriously ill died two days later.
Is this accurate? I don't know, but it matches what little we know: the case was on a family visit with two relatives. I admit it's a shock to think of a healthy young woman falling ill and dying, but H5N1 can do that; it's MERS and H7N9 that seem to prefer underlying medical conditions.
