Via Avian Flu Diary, Mike Coston writes: Shandong Province: Two Related H7N9 Cases. Excerpt:
Although we’ve continued to see a smattering of H7N9 cases reported across Eastern China over the past few months, the number of cases has dropped markedly since February, likely due to the closure of many live markets. Most of this year’s activity has been centered in Zhejiang and Guangdong Province.
Today, we’ve a bit of an outlier, however, as we have a father-son cluster reported in Yantai City, Shandong Province. Until now, Shandong Province had only reported three cases, one of which was imported from Jiangsu Province.
