          Additional lookback case of human infection of avian influenza A(H7N9) verified by NHFPC


          Hong Kong (HKSAR) - The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH) verified with the National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC) today (May 6) an additional lookback case of human infection of avian influenza A(H7N9) in Fujian affecting a nine-year-old boy who has been discharged from hospital.

          As of 9pm today, a total of 129 cases have been laboratory confirmed with avian influenza A(H7N9) in the Mainland, which included Zhejiang (46 cases), Shanghai (33 cases), Jiangsu (27 cases), Jiangxi (five cases), Fujian (five cases), Anhui (four cases), Henan (four cases), Shandong (two cases), Hunan (two cases) and Beijing (one case).

          A DH spokesman stressed that CHP is closely monitoring the situation and will continue to maintain close liaison with the Mainland health authorities for more case information, as well as keep a close eye on the latest advice from the World Health Organization.

          Following a report by the Ministry of Agriculture that a specimen from a chicken in the live poultry market in Dongguan, Guangdong had tested positive for avian influenza A(H7N9), Guangdong is now included in the list of affected areas.

          The spokesman also reminded travellers, especially those returning from Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Anhui, Henan, Beijing, Shandong, Jiangxi, Fujian, Hunan and Guangdong, with fever or respiratory symptoms, to wear facial masks immediately, seek medical attention, and reveal their travel history to doctors. Healthcare professionals should also pay special attention to those who might have had contact with birds, poultry or their droppings in the affected areas.

          "No human case of avian influenza A(H7N9) has been identified so far in Hong Kong," the spokesman reiterated.

          "We would like to reassure the public that the Government will be as transparent as possible in the dissemination of information on human cases of avian influenza A(H7N9). Whenever there is a suspected case, CHP will release information to the public as soon as possible," the spokesman added.

          The spokesman urged travellers not to visit wet markets with live poultry in the affected areas and avoid direct contact with poultry, birds or their droppings.

          If contacts have been made, they should thoroughly wash hands with soap and water.

          Members of the public should remain vigilant and are reminded to take heed of the following preventive advice against avian influenza:

          * Poultry and eggs should be thoroughly cooked before eating;
          * Wash hands frequently with soap, especially before touching the mouth, nose or eyes, handling food or eating, after going to toilet, touching public installations or equipment such as escalator handrails, elevator control panels or door knobs, or when hands are dirtied by respiratory secretions after coughing or sneezing;
          * Cover the nose and mouth while sneezing or coughing, hold the spit with tissue and put it into covered dustbins;
          * Avoid crowded places and contact with fever patients; and
          * Wear a mask when respiratory symptoms develop or you need to take care of fever patients.

          The public may visit the CHP's avian influenza page (www.chp.gov.hk/en/view_content/24244.html) for further information.

                The main reason behind the case count discrepancy is that China does not account for the second confirmed Beijing case (a Young boy, without clinical symptoms of illness and thus not fullfilling the case-definition criteria established by the WHO).

                In addition, China does not count the Taiwanese imported case.

                Obviously there will be other reasons, since the Chinese Ministry of Health posted today an updates clearly stating the number of confirmed cases as 129 with 31 deaths. See (in Chinese): http://www.moh.gov.cn/mohwsyjbgs/s35...dd3c455a.shtml
