  • CHP closely monitors human case of avian influenza A(H5N6) in Chengdu

    The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH) is today (June 8) closely monitoring a human case of avian influenza A(H5N6) in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, and again urged the public to maintain strict personal, food and environmental hygiene both locally and during travel.

    The case involved a 49-year-old woman living in Chengdu. She developed symptoms on May 1, and was admitted for treatment on the same day. The patient is now in serious condition.

    From 2014 to date, 31 human cases of avian influenza A(H5N6) have been reported by the Mainland health authorities.

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

      Our H5N6 case list is here. We have a global total of 32 because this year there was a case in Laos which added to the previous China cases.
