                              Start from the grassroots to use Tamiflu as soon as possible

                              Zhong Nanshan: That will not do, but also repeatedly detect viral nucleic acid job. Another way is 2 to 4 weeks after onset, check H7N9 antibodies.
                                
                              Jianfeng: Beijing is also found in patients with 2 consecutive check is negative, the 3rd is positive, the 4th and check out is negative.
                                
                              Reporter: Jiangsu limited human to human cases have occurred, and now his son have a fever, it will increase the risk of human transmission?
                                
                              Jianfeng: Now there are only limited human to human transmission case, even if the child finally infected patients, it is difficult to determine from person to person, as is common occupational exposure. Now no direct evidence in this regard, but proposed a hypothetical.
                                
                              One case can not be said virus southward

                              Zhong Nanshan: Only one case I do not say that, but we are now more cautious. Unless there is a clear genetic mutation, it may lead to (a pandemic), this name is still patient's viral gene sequencing, whether variation is unknown.
                                
                              Jianfeng: H7N9 epidemic in Guangdong diffusion-human transmission is extremely small or extremely low. The first is currently found or avian origin, there is no human influenza genes, there is no biological basis. Second from epidemiology, 96 Tightlock who 95 are good, only son yesterday appeared in patients with low-grade fever 37.8 ℃, the temperature has been normal now, last night, sampling and testing carried out twice now, have not detected any influenza positive refers to the disease. Currently this is a separate case, there is no diffusion in the crowd.
                                
                              Reporter: Now the weather is so hot, why there will be cases in Guangdong?
                                
                              Zhong Nanshan: H7N9 virus at least sixty to seventy degrees Celsius in the environment will (be killed), now how can there be such a high temperature?
