H7N9 is a nasty virus worth worrying about and it is spreading
H7N9 is spreading.
The number of confirmed H7N9 bird flu cases in China increased by four
to 108 yesterday. The number
of dead rose by one and is now at 22. To defend against this flu that is rapidly spreading in
China, the government will be authorizing health authorities to “strongly advise” people who are
sick or suspected of being infected with the disease to be hospitalized
and to restrict their working. In Taiwan health authorities confirmed the island's first human infection
of H7N9 avian flu on Wednesday, involving a 53-year-old Taiwanese man
who is believed to have been infected outside Taiwan as he showed
symptoms three days after returning from Suzhou City in Mainland China. So far, extensive monitoring of contacts has found little evidence that the virus has spread efficiently between people. Some person-to-person transmission may have occurred but this does not necessarily represent the early stages
of a pandemic.
