    The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH) is closely monitoring three additional human cases of avian influenza A(H7N9) in Shanghai (one case) and Guangdong (two cases).
    According to the notification of the Health and Family Planning Commission of Guangdong Province, the two cases involved a 66-year-old man in Shenzhen who is currently in critical condition, and a 1-year-old girl in Shanwei who had recovered.
    And according to the latest report of the Shanghai Municipal Commission of Health and Family Planning, the patient in Shanghai is a 69-year-old man who is currently under treatment.

    Regarding health education for travellers, the display of posters and broadcasting of health messages in departure and arrival halls, environmental health inspection and provision of regular updates to the travel industry and other stakeholders will be enhanced.
    Travellers, especially those returning from avian influenza-affected areas with fever or respiratory symptoms, should immediately wear masks, seek medical attention and reveal their travel history to doctors.
