              The Illness Control Agency on February 13 from February 4 this year, the first confirmed H7N9 outside the case moved to the case of the successful separation of the virus, and on February 15 to complete the whole gene sequence analysis, the relevant sequence message was on February 16 to provide farmers The committee was regularly distributed to the global GISAID website to share with the world, and today the meeting was confirmed by the Expert Advisory Committee on Influenza Advisory Committee. The results showed that the H7N9 influenza virus was isolated from the case, and its erythrocyte lectin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA) protein gene were similar to H7N9 influenza virus isolated from China. Other internal protein gene combinations Compared with the current virus is slightly different, may be a new genotype, the birds with high pathogenicity, but no enhancement of birds or human transmission ability of the mutation.   

              The Agency has said that the addition of three basic amino acids to the H7N9 virus isolated from the case of the HA protein cleavage may increase its pathogenicity in poultry. In addition, further gene sequence analysis showed that the NA protein of the virus has a mutation, anti-viral agents such as influenza and Ruileansa drug resistance, experts speculate that the treatment process may be selected from the drug resistance virus. The Department of Health (DH) immediately informed the care team as a treatment reference when the virus resistance was detected on February 15, and the current case is still in serious hospitalization. UNDCP and COA will keep abreast of trends in the international human and bird H7N9 virus epidemic strains, strengthen immediate epidemic surveillance and virus surveillance, and today announced the update of the new clinical guidelines for influenza A influenza A to ensure that people health.

It is not true that the World H7N9 first appeared in Shanghai, where the local medical institutions confirmed and completed the virus.
