  • Human H7N9 Cases February 28, 2014 (confirmed cases: 3, confirmed deaths: 0 ) (suspected cases: 0, suspected deaths:0)

    Cases #377 and #378 were confirmed today. Please see post 2 for the provincial government confirmation.


    Three paediatric cases reported in Zhejiang in the same location in 3 days

    In the latest three days we observed three new paediatric cases reported from Zhejiang Province Department of Health in the same location:

    • #373 - Girl, 2, Dongyang City. Confirmed on February 25, has developed a mild illness, treatment in a hospital in Jinhua. Zhejiang province
    • #377 - Girl, 7, Dongyang City. Confirmed on February 27, in serious condition, treatment at a hospital in Jinhua. Zhejiang province
    • #378 - Girl, 6, Dongyang City. Confirmed on February 27, in serious condition, treatment at a hospital in Jinhua. Zhejiang province

    Age, location and timing may suggest this may be a cluster of cases.

    Notably, the 2nd and 3rd cases are reported as in serious condition; almost all previous notified paediatric cases in China were mild.

    This feature may signal an epidemiological change in Zhejiang that deserves careful monitoring and assessment.
