                It's getting difficult to keep track, but by my count, that is 6 more cases and 2 more deaths than are listed in the case tracking thread, for a total of 78 confirmed and 16 deaths.

                            Thanks Biological. WHO has never identified the mystery Shanghai cases.

                            The 74 year old we have as case #17.

                            The 63 year old is not have listed as a specific case. Could be one of the mystery Shanghai cases.

                            The 69 year old we have as case #74.

                            The 41 is not listed on our list as a specific case. Could be one of the mystery Shanghai cases.

                              Shanghai (7th) is the 17 case decribed in S, Zheng Y, Li T, Hu Y, Liu X, Xi S, et al. Clinical findings for early human cases of influenza A(H7N9) virus infection, Shanghai, China. Emerg Infect Dis. 2013 Vol. 19 No. 7 - July 2013 DOI: 10.3201/eid1907.130612

                              Case-patient 1 was receiving noninvasive ventilator-assisted breathing when he arrived at SHPHCC. His oxygen saturation remained at ≈95&#37;, and he was given continuous intravenous dopamine infusion. He had acute respiratory failure, coronary heart disease (stage 2 heart failure), and renal function insufficiency at admission. On April 11, 11 days after the onset of the symptoms and 2 hours after endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation began, he died from respiratory failure. (Fatal- 11-Apr-13)

                              I believe this is a different case!

                              69 is already described earlier! I just happened to put it in for mete data assistance!
