    CHINA - Beijing's first confirmed case of H7N9 - a 7-year-old girl from Shunyi district - came into contact with poultry shipped from Tianjin before being infected, authorities said.

    The girl's parents, who are poultry dealers, bought chicken in Tianjin to sell to villagers in Beijing's Shunyi and Chaoyang districts, said an animal health inspection official in Shunyi surnamed Ding.
    ...
    The girl's father Yao Jiang took over the poultry business from another villager on April 2, and inherited chickens and some tools from the dealer. On April 4 Yao bought another 60 chickens from Tianjin.

    Later, Yao sold 29 chickens in Shunyi and Chaoyang, and killed two for home consumption.

    "On the morning of April 11, I found my child had a fever, and I soon remembered H7N9, which I saw from TV, so I took her to the hospital," Yao was quoted as saying by Beijing Youth Daily.

    "But I'm still not sure she caught H7N9 from our chickens, because I had killed chickens, cooked chicken and ate chicken, and I'm still fine. But my girl had never touched the chickens. She stood at least one or two steps away from the chickens watching them," he said.

    Yao and his wife are now quarantined at home.

    A dealer surnamed Tai who lives in Baodi district in Tianjin, said he had sold chickens to Yao. The chickens were from a farm in Wuqing district of Tianjin.
    The Tianjin government tested Tai's chickens and chickens at the farm in Wuqing. No H7N9 virus was detected.

            Town With No Fowl Shows Consequences of China?s Bird Flu Threat

            By Bloomberg News - May 8, 2013 8:43 PM CT

            In the village on the outskirts of Beijing where a 7-year-old girl became the Chinese capital?s first bird flu patient, poultry are conspicuous by their absence.

            Authorities culled chickens and shut live poultry stalls to limit human exposure to farmed birds, which scientists believe are the most probable reservoir of the new H7N9 influenza strain. In the village of Gucheng, 20 kilometers (12 miles) northeast of central Beijing, the only source of chicken readily available to residents is in a supermarket that?s a 30-minute bus ride away.
            ...
            ?We are very well, our daughter is going to school now and we want life to go back to normal,? said the father, who only wanted to be identified by his surname Yao, when reached on his mobile phone.

            The native of Hebei province said he no longer sells chickens and will instead seek odd jobs to support his family.
            ...
            At a gate leading into the village, two security guards inspect vehicles to ensure they?re not carting in live poultry. Decontaminants are sprayed twice daily and hawkers are barred from setting up stalls on the sides of the main street, forcing some to sell their merchandise from the rooms they sleep in.

            The single-room home of the 7-year-old girl is unoccupied. Through a window, a poster can be seen hanging on a wall, warning about the dangers of H7N9. A commercial refrigerator stands in the middle of the 20-square-meter large room beside a metal bed on which blankets and pillows are neatly stacked.

            The Yao family hasn?t been seen in the village for weeks since the girl was discharged from hospital last month after falling sick on April 11, said Zheng Jie, a neighbor.

            ?They?ve moved away,? Zheng said as she squatted by a communal tap to wash a pot outside her home. ?Many other families are also moving away.
            It?s become very quiet.?

              2013 05 14, 2011 08:32 Source: Health News network   

              Since February 2013, the number of provinces and cities in China have reported confirmed cases of human infection with the H7N9 avian influenza, and are sporadic cases. Based on the available evidence, the risk of infection is mainly concentrated in the live poultry market, the future of China is likely to further sporadic cases. Some experts said that there is no evidence that children's H7N9 infection is low.
                
              Children vulnerable to viruses
                
              Beijing confirmed the first case of H7N9 cases, for example, is a seven-year-old girl, parents engaged in live poultry slaughtering but not suffering from H7N9, she was infected. After analysis, it may be because of the incomplete development of the children themselves, the resistance in terms of relative adult lower, more vulnerable to viruses and bacteria infection.
                
              Then the children how to prevent the H7N9 virus? This has led to the widespread concern of the parents. Experts believe that should do the day-to-day health prevention work, start from the details of life.
                
              Prevent details from the start
                
              Now is a good time to travel, but more outskirts of birds and other poultry, may wish to temporarily give up travel plans to reduce the chance of the child direct contact with poultry; crowded public places, poor air quality, let the children go to crowded public places should be avoided; maintain a home ventilation, fresh air; let the children do wash their hands, and pay attention to the amount of movement, in order to enhance its own resistance; take in adequate nutrition , not picky eaters, the partial eclipse, in order to meet the development needs of the body. At the same time, we should uphold the early detection, early reporting, early diagnosis and early treatment of principle, as a child, once the abnormal symptoms such as fever, cough, should seek immediate medical attention . In the course of medical treatment in case of sampling inspection, do not panic.
