    The first case of H5N6 infection of H7N9 deaths of four patients recovered

    Date: [2015-01-31] ​​

    ■ Yesterday, the first case of H5N6 patient was discharged and held a press conference in the first Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University.

    Guangdong influenza prevention and control mixed

    Yesterday, the Guangdong Provincial Health Planning Commission held a press conference revealed that, after Clifford Hospital, Guangzhou Medical Hospital medical staff to treat more than a month, the first case of Guangdong Province, the world's second case of H5N6 cases recovered soon discharged. According to reports, since the beginning of winter, the province reported a total of 28 cases of H7N9 cases, four cases have died, others are severe. Experts said the various subtypes of avian flu, more and more people the most effective prevention method is to reduce contact with live poultry.

    ■ Express reporter Li Qiuling correspondent Guangdong Health Letter

    For personal and family health, it is recommended not to buy the majority of the public is best live birds, H7N9 is now the treatment is still very difficult, the mortality rate of 40%, second only to H5N1, so I try not to touch the hair still recommend the chicken.

    Buy chicken after onset rain

    December 2, 2014, to market to buy a mound of chicken to eat, cold rain on the way, two days after the sudden appearance of fever, body temperature fluctuations at 38 ℃ ~ 39 ℃, has home nearby hospitals, Clifford Hospital of Guangzhou Panyu District of Guangzhou treatment Finally, due to critical condition were transferred to a hospital of Guangzhou Medical Institute respiratory isolation ward Intensive Care Medicine.

    Deputy director of CDC 杨智聪 that Guangzhou has perfect influenza surveillance system, a sentinel surveillance hospitals, every week the unexplained pneumonia, bird flu samples to CDC inspection mound to pray in a hospital after sampling sent to CDC testing, did not detectable common H3N2, H7N9, H9N2, H1N1 and other subtypes, but inspectors still very cautious, after various subtypes of the investigation, it is determined that H5N6, the samples sent to the province after CDC and national disease control department, confirmed this result.

    Following a thorough examination, diagnosis, patients were infected with H5N6 confirmed human cases, the situation is critical. Since this is the second example of a global H5N6 case (first case occurred in Sichuan, patients were male, had died), no experience can learn the successful salvage therapy, the Chinese Academy of Engineering, Professor Zhong Nanshan attention, Canton Medical School also organized a multidisciplinary expert consultation to develop a detailed and rigorous treatment.

    Eventually, after more than a month of fighting, the patient's condition gradually improved. "Thus, antiviral drugs are effective against H5N6 infection, we do not need to panic." Zhong Nanshan said.

    H7N9 cases have been four deaths

    Zhong Nanshan said, H5N6, like H5N1, H7N9, as a part of avian influenza infection in poultry is mainly related with the contact.

    Provincial CDC chief expert Jianfeng also revealed that since last winter, Guangdong has reported 28 cases of H7N9 cases. "Compared to last year, no significant decline in the number of cases." Four of the patients with mild cases of small, they were found in the clinic, the other 24 cases were severe, 4 cases died of his death. Jianfeng that the live bird market management is often not in place, the number of cases of bird flu, the more hair.

    Experts also said that at present, Guangdong also appeared aggregated H7N9 cases, after an elderly sick, which is taking care of her son, hand pick their sputum, subsequently the onset. "But we still judge the H7N9, which no evidence can be transmitted person to person, the public need not worry." Zhong Nanshan said.

    Canton Medical School Dr. Xiaoqing Liu said around consultation H7N9, patients with a history of severe understand when found, they are still a step late medication, "fever, leukopenia when doctors ignored, when seriously ill in hospital until the medication (Tamiflu) . "She warned that early enough with antiviral drugs, able to gain time to save the patient.

    "Treatment process is very difficult, but also life-support equipment, basic hospital can hope early detection and early treatment of these patients." Xiaoqing Liu said.

    "In fact, the provincial levels of government, municipalities have made arrangements, adequate Tamiflu and other antiviral drugs." Said Zhong Nanshan, went live bird markets, contact with live chickens, have a fever, you can timely medication. Tamiflu is effective against all influenza viruses, but relatively expensive, in order to avoid drug resistance, it can not be abused, not as a routine use.

    Focus Q

    Difficult to treat H7N9 mortality rate of 40%

    Q: What is difficult to treat H5N6?

    Zhong Nanshan: H5N6, like H5N1, H7N9, as a part of avian influenza infection in poultry is mainly related with the contact, H5N6 diagnosis of the first case would not have died, (Panyu patients) treatment process really is not easy, but no more than other birds Flu patients had more special, more difficult places, in fact, in the initial routine testing found no virus, the hospital will still be able to pray as soon as possible for a mound with Tamiflu, which provides the possibility for further treatment. Grassroots awareness of the medical staff has been very strong, stick with antiviral drugs, for rescue significant, it should certainly.

    Q: Chinese New Year public to reflect no chickens, no taste delicious country?

    Zhong Nanshan: for personal and family health, we recommend that the general public is best not to buy live poultry, H7N9 is now the treatment is still very difficult, the mortality rate of 40%, second only to H5N1, so I suggest try not to touch the hair or chicken. If the taste is really not so fresh, it not so fresh, and most importantly, people want peace.

    Q: The Chinese New Year is often high incidence of H7N9, prone to deaths How to prevent?

    Jianfeng: The best way is to reduce contact with live poultry. Guangdong risk of human infection with the H7N9 avian flu, there are still sporadic cases, do not rule out active trading of live poultry in individual cities several points, the emergence of sporadic cases. January 15, Guangdong formally implemented "Guangdong poultry management approach", pushing fresh chicken, but it will take time to implement, before the market is not the transformation is complete, each market must implement the "1110" system (ie: day A cleaning and disinfection, cleaning a week, closed in January and live birds in the market, but the night). However, we found that "111" can be done well, but the "0" night of live poultry, but the implementation of the system is less than 10%, which may be the reason the country are quite a number of H7N9 cases.
