    Hunan No H7N9 case reports, the provincial People's health department H7N9 death cases rumor
    Author: Liu Fuqiang Source: Center Emergency Office Hits: 1372 Update Time: 2016-1-9

    Hunan Province in 2015 first half report two cases of human infection with the H7N9 bird flu, the second half of 2015 to the present has not been found infected with H7N9 bird flu human cases, as for January 8, 2016 the Department of Hunan Province, who died in hospital pregnant rumor example H7N9, please the public not to listen to rumors, to be published in the official government news subject, do not believe rumors rumor.

    This morning, a number of media to Hunan Provincial Disease Prevention and Control Center to verify a message, "Hunan Provincial People's Hospital yesterday four twenty-one, because H7N9 death, 31 years old, the child is still in the womb, doctors involved in the rescue has been isolated, emergency notification, the central two sets of TV news has been broadcast, temporarily do not eat chicken, duck, because Changsha to Yueyang City 5570 has infected poultry. received immediately sent to concerned people, prevention is always better than cure Seeing, mass diffusion. "this information, Hunan Provincial Disease Prevention and Control Center Dr. Liu Fuqiang, head of the Emergency Office affirmative answer" This is definitely a rumor, as infectious diseases surveillance Hunan professional bodies, we have not received H7N9 cases related report, because once the relevant cases in this area, we will be the first time to take relevant control measures. "

    see the entry starting in 2013, nonsense, lied, sensational, has been authority Department repeated rumor N + 1 times H7N9 bird flu rumors, rampant again, part of the "well-intentioned people," the popular micro-channel circle of friends, experts mention the public, please raise your IQ! At the same time the country recently, "lay the gun" hospital really a lot ah! Beijing, Hebei, Jilin, Shandong, Shenzhen, Wuhan, and many hospitals have been due to H7N9 avian influenza, the Internet, "sudden death."

    Of course, the great panic had been manufactured and avian influenza, recently appeared in the provinces in some cases, it occurs repeatedly, it will lead to a new flu outbreak? Hunan will not be affected? Especially the Spring Festival approaching, increase mobility, passengers traveling often in people crowded in confined spaces, limited health facilities, and some chickens, ducks and other poultry animals carry passengers ride more easily lead to the spread of avian influenza, the people in this situation Under How should protect themselves from infection it? Faced with many questions, Hunan CDC Emergency Office director Dr. Liu Fuqiang tell you about the prevention and control methods.

    Liu Fuqiang presentation, winter weather is cold, a flu season, the Spring Festival approaching, the population flow into the peak period, worthy of attention is that the spring on the way, carrying poultry, it is possible to spread of avian influenza, such as H5N1, H7N9, H9N2, H10N8, H5N6 influenza virus. 2015 nationwide live bird markets and poultry inherent continuous monitoring to multiple subtypes of avian influenza virus, virus isolation with H9N2, H5N6 and H5N1 based. In 2015 the province disease control systems to monitor external environment samples also detected some of the H7 and H9 positive positive situation. Assessment by experts, the province 2015 ~ 2016 winter and spring in particular around the Spring Festival in 2016 will likely continue to appear sporadic cases of human infection with avian influenza does not rule out the possibility of clusters of disease, but no major epidemics and outbreaks. Outside the main source of infection outside the province derived input, Changsha, Yueyang, Shaoyang, Loudi City, Chenzhou City and Yongzhou is the prevention and control of key areas. There blocked provinces poultry outbreak is the key to prevention and control into the province, we will further strengthen communication and agriculture sector, to grasp the avian influenza virus infection, increased monitoring of cases of pneumonia of unknown causes, and strengthen the health education and case management, reduce morbidity and mortality.

    Because now in the winter season, the province in the coming period will be enhanced influenza activity, there may be situations local outbreaks and deaths occur, but over the years the possibility of influenza activity peak levels this year is unlikely. And currently there is no evidence that the H7N9 virus has the ability to sustained human transmission, H7N9, H9N2, H10N8, H5N6 avian influenza virus infection of human capacity is still low, a low pathogenic avian influenza virus. So people do not need to panic, but people should still pay attention to in everyday life how to avoid infection.

    During the spring, the proposed airport, railway station, long-distance bus terminal and other passenger waiting area should strengthen disinfection and ventilation frequency in public places, wash basins and other sanitary facilities guarantee the normal operation to protect the health of passengers during the Spring Festival.

    During the spring it should be prohibited on vehicles carrying live birds, live poultry to prevent the carry may occur during the spring riding public transport to avoid the outbreak. In the waiting, while waiting, try waiting in ventilated area. Try not to crowded, polluted air spaces stay. If the journey flu-like symptoms such as fever, try to wear masks to prevent transmission to others.

    In addition, the provincial CDC Dr. Liu Fuqiang Tips ordinary people in their daily lives to pay attention to the following points to prevent bird flu infection:
