    H7N9: Another case in Beijing?

    This is why I don't like computer translations. The Beijing Municipal Health Bureau just posted a story on its website: Active screening for the monitoring found one case of human infection with H7N9 avian flu virus. Here's a translated excerpt:

    /.../

    If I understand this report, a family living across the street from the Yao family has a four-year-old boy who has tested positive for H7N9 but is showing no clinical symptoms. He was tested with a lot of other poultry dealers' family members. If he's asymptomatic, that's probably a bigger story than if he's sick.

            Young children of parents / grandparents in those groups are worthy of ongoing surveillance, especially if the child in this report is determined to be asymptomatic and infective.

                        The Hong Kong heath department was a day late in reporting the 1st Beijing case. We will see what they do with the new case. In any event, we are an independent group and I have no problem if our confirmed list deviates from the official reports. If a patient tests positive via nucleic acid for H7N9 then we will include this patient on the confirmed list. The government of Beijing included the first case after a local consensus that included both the test result and the clinical observations. I wonder how they are going to classify asymptomatic cases in this regard.

                              <li style="margin-bottom: 15px;">Added 15.04.13. Multiple reports of the first asymptomatic case in a 4-year old male (4M) living across the street from the previously H7N9-POS, 7F. This may demystify a lot of H7N9 confusion as well as seriously increase the threat level for H7N9 spread...a stealth virus not only in poultry but humans is a new game. As I've suggested earlier, the widespread use of sensitive molecular detection methods, not just on the cases with the most severe clinical signs and symptoms, is absolutely essential to detect mild or asymptomatic cases of infection. The use of PCR in this way seems to have done just that. I'll keep a close eye on this story but I suspect it will result in a drastic change to the landscape of detection numbers and epidemiology. Symptoms alone tell only a small part of the story of any respiratory virus. This may strengthen the case for H7N9 having been in the community for much longer than the pneumonia cases officially commencing back in Feb, suggest.

                              Shine upon you,
                              All love surround you,
                              And the pure light within you
                              Guide your way on."
