                Re: China - Suspected Human case of H5N1 in Shenzhen, Guangdong province (December 30 2011), Preliminary test is H5N1 Positive

                A 39-year-old man is in critical condition after testing positive for the deadly H5N1 bird flu virus in the Chinese city of Shenzhen, state media reported Saturday quoting local health authorities.

                The city borders Hong Kong, which has culled thousands of chickens and ordered a suspension of live poultry imports from China after three birds tested positive with the strain in mid-December.

                The man, a bus driver surnamed Chen, was hospitalised with a fever on December 21 and tested positive for the H5N1 avian influenza virus in Shenzhen's Bao'an district, the provincial health department said, according to Xinhua news agency.

                He remains in a critical condition and is receiving emergency treatment, the report said, adding that the man had apparently had no direct contact with poultry in the month before he was taken ill nor had he left the city.

                Chinese and Hong Kong authorities have been working closely together since December 21 after live poultry supplies were suspended to the glitzy financial hub following the discovery of infected birds.

                  It is always worth to note that most of human A(H5N1) avian influenza virus infections in China since 2003 had not recognized contact with poultry (ie live chickens, carcasses, diseased animals).

                  For an overview of a series of such cases, readers could see this Emerging Infectious Diseases Journal article: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2878233/
