          Notification of confirmed human case of avian influenza A(H7N9) in Guangdong

          The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH) has been notified by the Health and Family Planning Commission of Guangdong Province of a confirmed human case of avian influenza A(H7N9) today (December 7) affecting a 66-year-old man in Meizhou, Guangdong Province. The patient passed away on December 3.

          The CHP is also closely monitoring an additional human case of avian influenza A(H7N9) in Shanghai. According to the latest report of the Mainland health authority, the 38-year-old male patient's case was confirmed yesterday and he was hospitalised for isolation and management.

          "Locally, we will remain vigilant and work closely with the World Health Organization and relevant health authorities to monitor the latest developments," a spokesman for the DH said.

          "In view of cases confirmed on the Mainland, members of the public should maintain good personal, food and environmental hygiene at all times during travel," the spokesman urged.

          "All boundary control points have implemented disease prevention and control measures. Thermal imaging systems are in place for body temperature checks of inbound travellers. Suspected cases will be immediately referred to public hospitals for follow-up investigation," the spokesman added.

          Regarding health education for travellers, the display of posters and broadcast of health messages in departure and arrival halls, environmental health inspection and provision of regular updates to the travel industry via meetings and correspondence are proceeding.

          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. Healthcare professionals should pay special attention to patients who might have had contact with poultry, birds or their droppings in affected areas.

          The public should remain vigilant and take heed of the advice against avian influenza below:

          * Do not visit live poultry markets and farms. Avoid contact with poultry, birds and their droppings;
          * If contact has been made, thoroughly wash hands with soap;
          * Avoid entering areas where poultry may be slaughtered and contact with surfaces which might be contaminated by droppings of poultry or other animals;
          * Poultry and eggs should be thoroughly cooked before eating;
          * Wash hands frequently with soap, especially before touching the mouth, nose or eyes, handling food or eating; after going to the toilet or touching public installations or equipment (including escalator handrails, elevator control panels and door knobs); and when hands are dirtied by respiratory secretions after coughing or sneezing;
          * Cover the nose and mouth while sneezing or coughing, hold the spit with a tissue and put it into a covered dustbin;
          * Avoid crowded places and contact with fever patients; and
          * Wear masks when respiratory symptoms develop or when taking care of fever patients.

          The public may visit the avian influenza page of the CHP of the DH (www.chp.gov.hk/en/view_content/24244.html) for more information on avian influenza. The updated information of affected areas can be found on the following webpage: http://www.chp.gov.hk/files/pdf/glob...nfluenza_e.pdf.
