    My guess is that those are 3 cases for January. We have one listed one of those cases.

    #710 - 1 new case announced in government media on January 19, Fujian province

    I do not see anything on the Fujian province site but I have made a general note on our case list regarding the probable cases in China for January:

    Provisional comment: There have been several indicators that the total case number for January 2016 will be 28. We have 15 cases already listed above. It appears we will be adding 13 more cases when the China HFPC report is issued in a few days. This will bring the total number of cases to 731. link
