The Centre for Health Protection has issued a news release: CHP notified of four additional human cases of avian influenza A(H7N9) and one case of avian influenza A (H5) in Mainland. Excerpt, with my bolding:
The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH) yesterday (February 24) received notification of four additional human cases of avian influenza A(H7N9) in Guangzhou (three cases) and Foshan (one case) from the Health and Family Planning Commission of Guangdong Province.
The cases in Guangzhou involve a man aged 76 and two women aged 55 and 75 while the case in Foshan involves a man aged 33. They are currently hospitalised for treatment.
As of yesterday, a total of 361 human cases of avian influenza A(H7N9) have been confirmed in the Mainland, including Zhejiang (135 cases), Guangdong (79 cases), Jiangsu (41 cases), Shanghai (41 cases), Fujian (20 cases), Hunan (14 cases), Anhui (nine cases), Jiangxi (six cases), Beijing (four cases), Henan (four cases), Guangxi (three cases), Shandong (two cases), Guizhou (one case, imported from Zhejiang), Hebei (one case) and Jilin (one case).
Additionally, the CHP received notification of an additional human case of avian influenza A (H5) in Hunan from the National Health and Family Planning Commission. The patient is a 5-year-old girl who recovered and has been discharged from hospital.
I would like to know a great deal more about this little girl: When did she contract the disease, where and how was she treated, when did she recover? And that's just for starters.
