Via Xinhua: China predicts more H7N9 infections. Excerpt:
Health experts predicted more H7N9 cases in the near future after east China's Anhui Province reported a new death from the virus on Monday, according to health authorities.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Yao Hongwen, spokesman for the National Health and Family Planning Commission, said that there will continue to be sporadic reports of H7N9 infections.
"No mutation of the virus has been identified so far that could affect public health, and transmission from animals remains the only way in which humans have picked up the virus," the spokesman said.
Vaccine development has progressed smoothly, and relevant authorities are promoting vaccine research and making preparations for approval and use of the vaccine, according to Yao.
