          The Disease Control Agency announced today (9) that mainland China reported on April 5 that there was a new case of H7N9 influenza in Jiuquan City, Gansu Province. This is the global flu season (from October 2018) and the world's first H7N9 case this year. The area may be exposed to the Alxa League of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, and the Department of Disease Control has thus proposed to promote the new type A influenza tourism epidemic in Inner Mongolia to the second level of alert.







          The world's first case of H7N9 flu this year was an 82-year-old man who developed symptoms on March 18 and was hospitalized on March 31. His condition was severe and the history of live poultry exposure was unknown. Luo Yizhen, deputy director of the Department of Disease Control, said that three cases of H7N9 influenza in the previous flu season occurred in mainland China, and one of them died.



          At present, the number of cases in mainland China is significantly lower than that of previous years. It may be related to the implementation of poultry H7N9 flu vaccination in mainland China. However, the CDC believes that there will continue to be human sporadic cases based on current status assessment.



          Since 2013, there have been 1568 cases of H7N9 influenza, including 615 deaths, with a mortality rate of 30 to 40%. Sources of notification included Mainland China (1537 cases), Hong Kong (21 cases), Macau (2 cases), Canada (2 cases) and Malaysia (1 case).



          In addition, there are 5 cases of H7N9 influenza diagnosed in Taiwan, all of which were from mainland China, and 2 of them died. Luo Yizhen reminded Chinese people to go to mainland China, and should implement the principle of “5 to 6 no” for proper hand washing, symptomatic wearing masks, no touching and raw food birds.



          The vast majority of H7N9 flu is avian and human, with only sporadic cases. The initial symptoms of infection are fever, cough, headache, muscle aches, chills and general burnout. Severe patients often develop severe pneumonia 3 to 7 days after onset, and rapidly progress to respiratory failure, septic shock, and even multiple organ dysfunction.



          The Department of Disease Control has listed Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Guangdong Province, Anhui Province, Fujian Province, Beijing, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Jiangsu Province, Hunan Province and Yunnan Province as the second-level warning for new influenza A tourism epidemic (Alert). Other provinces and cities are listed as the first level of attention (Watch).

            Apparently someone arrested on suspicion of illegal poultry sales:

            The procuratorial organ approved the arrest of the suspects of the "4.5" quarantine of animal and plant epidemic prevention and quarantine cases in accordance with the law.

            On April 4, the China Disease Prevention and Control Information System reported that a case of human infection with H7N9 avian influenza (type B infectious disease) in Ejinaqi is currently being treated in hospital. After the Ejinaqi Committee and the government received the report, the "Emergency Plan for Public Health Emergencies" was launched at the first time. On April 5, the Ejinaqi Public Security Bureau investigated and dealt with an illegal live poultry slaughtering point according to law, and criminally detained the suspect Li Moumou on suspicion of damaging animal and plant epidemic prevention and quarantine. On April 6, the Ejinaqi People's Procuratorate sent personnel to intervene and conduct investigations in advance. On April 8, the Ejinaqi People's Procuratorate approved the arrest of the suspect Li Moumou on suspicion of nuisance of animal and plant epidemic prevention and quarantine. Currently, this case is still under investigation.

              The above case was not included in the March 2019 report below. Maybe in April?


              NHC released monthly report on legal infectious disease in MARCH.
              NHC, on April 25 evening (BST) released the above.
              There was no report on H7N9 avian flu.
              I am doubting the NHC has backdated the release date since they did not release the info on the afternoon of yesterday (April. 25).
              however, I found the site at 22:00 (Japan Standard Time).
