Yangcheng Evening News reporter Huang Hui Zhou, Kang Xin Yue correspondent reports: November 28, Dongguan City, Guangdong Province reported 1 case of confirmed cases of human infection with H7N9 avian influenza, now Guangzhou designated hospital for treatment. Guangdong CDC experts to carry out risk assessment that will continue to take place this winter and spring, Guangdong people infected with H7N9 bird flu cases, clusters of cases occur in areas of active trading of live poultry. Experts suggest that to minimize the live bird trade.

It is reported, Dongguan City, after H7N9 bird flu confirmed cases of human infection, for the effective control of spread of the epidemic, the CDC professionals have to carry out epidemiological surveys of close contacts under medical observation, and conduct emergency ILI crowd at the local monitor, guide the development of the market clearing temporary fence disinfection. Experts said that to enter the fall and winter quarters, such as Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Guangdong, Xinjiang, have been found in people infected with H7N9 bird flu, winter and spring prompted a new round of human infection with H7N9 avian influenza in high season coming.

Studies have shown that live animal markets, especially in the retail market exposure is a risk factor for human infection with H7N9 avian influenza. Guangdong CDC chief expert Jianfeng introduction, live animal markets in the environment is complex, all kinds of birds are gathered in a relatively small space, will give a recombinant virus, spread to provide a great convenience, so do live poultry market management is very important. Guangdong Province since last year launched the live bird market, "1110" system, the requirements of the market on a day to clean and disinfect a week a clean-up, 1 January retail live poultry markets were closed and herds zero zero overnight. However, Jianfeng think, live bird market management while improving, but generally speaking, live bird markets in Guangdong business model has not changed fundamentally, "only the strict implementation of live animal markets '1110' system in order to effectively prevent human infection bird flu. "

Experts remind that in live poultry slaughter and sale of personal protection officers should be prepared, wearing masks during practitioners, gloves and wearing overalls.

Use a cutting board handling raw and cooked food should be separated, cut raw meat chopping block must be scalded with boiling water, may well prevent transmission of the virus or infection. Experts also pointed out that after cooked poultry products are safe, be safe to eat.

How do epidemic prevention and control, prevention and control of human infection with H7N9 Guangdong bird flu prevention and control team leader Zhang Yonghui think it is the fight against bird flu, mostly proposed monitoring and preventive measures, so that early identification, early isolation and early reporting and early treatment are emerging in response to the virus. But fundamentally, the need to establish a "zero-level prevention," the notion that after the confirmation by the onset of the root causes, government legislation and policies should strive to eliminate the root causes of disease arising achieve longer repeated. "It should also gradually change fundamentally the way people's diet to minimize the live bird trade." Zhang Yonghui said.
