  • China - Hong Kong CHP notified of additional human case of avian influenza A(H5N6) in Anhui - May 3, 2016

    The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH) was notified of an additional human case of avian influenza A(H5N6) in Anhui by the National Health and Family Planning Commission today (May 3), and again urged the public to maintain strict personal, food and environmental hygiene both locally and during travel.

    The case involves an 65-year-old woman who lives in Xuancheng, Anhui. With history of poultry contact before onset, the patient developed symptoms on April 24 and was admitted to a local hospital on April 27. She is now in critical condition.

    From 2014 to date, a total of 13 human cases of avian influenza A(H5N6) have been reported by the Mainland health authorities.

    "All novel influenza A infections, including H5N6, are statutory notifiable infectious diseases in Hong Kong," a spokesman for the CHP said.

    "We will remain vigilant and work closely with the World Health Organization and relevant health authorities to monitor the latest developments," the spokesman said.
