            The patient became ill on October 16 and is currently receiving treatment in hospital in serious condition. His sample tested positive for the avian influenza A(H7N9) virus upon testing by the Zhejiang Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The case has been confirmed by the relevant health authority.

            To date, a total of 136 human cases of avian influenza A(H7N9) have been laboratory confirmed in the Mainland, including:
            1. Zhejiang (48 cases),
            2. Shanghai (33 cases),
            3. Jiangsu (28 cases),
            4. Jiangxi (six cases),
            5. Fujian (five cases),

            11. Hebei (one case) and
            12. Guangdong (one case).
            A spokesman for the DH remarked that the CHP is closely monitoring the situation and maintaining close liaison with the Mainland health authorities for case details, as well as keeping a close eye on the latest advice from the World Health Organization (WHO).

            "Locally, no confirmed human cases of avian influenza A(H7N9) have been recorded so far," the spokesman stressed.

            Travellers, especially those returning from Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Anhui, Henan, Beijing, Shandong, Jiangxi, Fujian, Hunan, Hebei or Guangdong, with fever or respiratory symptoms are reminded to immediately wear facial masks, seek medical attention, and reveal their travel history to doctors. Health-care professionals should also pay special attention to patients who might have had contact with birds, poultry or their droppings in affected areas.

            In response to the human cases of avian influenza A(H7N9) in the Mainland, port health measures have been implemented at all border control points (BCPs) and health information is being disseminated to travellers through various means including display of posters on avian influenza A(H7N9) in departure and arrival halls, distribution of health education pamphlets, in-flight announcements, enhanced environmental health inspection, provision of regular updates to travel industries via meetings and correspondence, surveillance of sick travellers and referral of suspected cases to public hospitals for further investigation.

            The DH will continue to maintain its port health measures at all BCPs and keep a close eye on the latest advice from the WHO and the measures of the Mainland inspection and quarantine authorities to strengthen its work in disease prevention and control according to the latest situation.

            The spokesman urged travellers not to visit wet markets with live poultry in the affected areas and to avoid direct contact with poultry, birds and their droppings. If contact has been made, they should thoroughly wash their hands with soap and water.

            Members of the public should remain vigilant and are reminded to take heed of the following preventive advice against avian influenza:
            • 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 such as escalator handrails, elevator control panels or door knobs; or when hands are dirtied by respiratory secretions after coughing or sneezing;
            • Cover the nose and mouth while sneezing or coughing, and hold the spit with a tissue and put it into a covered dustbin;
            • Avoid crowded places and contact with fever patients; and
            • Wear a mask when respiratory symptoms develop or when taking care of fever patients.
            The public may visit the CHP's avian influenza page (www.chp.gov.hk/en/view_content/24244.html ) for further information.

                Jiaxing new case of human H7N9 avian influenza infection is currently ill

                date :2013 -10-24 08:13
                  
                Following the October 15 Shaoxing new case of human infection of H7N9 avian influenza after yesterday, Health Department of Zhejiang Province, Jiaxing also added one case of human infection with the H7N9 avian influenza.

                Currently, the patient was seriously ill, hospitals are in active treatment.

                Experts predict that the next is likely to have sporadic cases

                Appear in the first half but the possibility of very small-scale epidemic

                Added on yesterday Jiaxing case of human infection H7N9 avian influenza, in fact, does not make people feel too surprised.

                October 15 Shaoxing new case of human H7N9 avian influenza infection after detecting critical public health emergency, Zhejiang Key Laboratory director of the provincial CDC microbiological laboratory science chief expert Professor Lu Yiyu said, do not rule out another sporadically Zhejiang case situation, but we do not have too much panic. First, compared to other seasonal epidemics of influenza, human infection with H7N9 avian influenza low incidence lot. Second, they are extracted from Shaoxing patients to H7N9 virus were analyzed and found the virus in the first half of this year and more than 99% homology. In other words, H7N9 virus does not mutate, so even if there is sporadic cases, can follow the first half of the treatment and prevention methods used.

                Added again in the second half of the province of human infection with H7N9 avian influenza, diagnosis and treatment of human infection of H7N9 avian influenza virus first person, Chinese Academy of Engineering, State Key Laboratory for Diagnosis and Treatment of Infectious Diseases Director Li Lanjuan also said that the second half of people infected with H7N9 epidemic will continue to distribute mainly from person to person is unlikely that the aggregation of the epidemic appears unlikely. And now a vaccine against the H7N9 virus has been developed to complete, ready to be produced, we do not need to panic.

                The province of human infection with H7N9 avian influenza expert, an expert personal forecast, the second half of the first half of the epidemic should be no serious epidemic occurred in the first half the size of very small possibility.

                Patients infected with H7N9 province

                Highest proportion of farmers and retirees, up 70%

                At present, Zhejiang has reported cases of human infection with H7N9 avian influenza in 48 cases, including 30 cases in Hangzhou, Huzhou 12 cases, 3 cases of Jiaxing, Wenzhou, Shaoxing two cases and one case.
                These 48 patients, the largest proportion of farmers, a total of 19 people, accounting for 39.6%; followed by retirees, a total of 15 cases, accounting for 31.3%; company employees have three cases; other occupations were 7 cases (Cook 1 people, engaged in meat pigeon breeding seller a person, the driver a person, street cadres, a person, a self-employed person, worker 2); unemployed or unemployed four cases.

                The age composition, the proportion of patients aged over 60 up to a total of 26 people, accounting for 54.2%; 40 -60 years a total of 13 patients, accounting for 27.1%; 40 patients under the age of 9.

                The elderly, patients

                Minimize contact with live birds

                April 25, the world's leading medical journal "The Lancet" published a research team led by Academician Li Lanjuan writing research papers, thesis titled "" source of human infection with live poultry markets, "the new hair H7N9 subtype avian influenza virus: clinical analysis and viral genome characteristics ", the paper pointed out that human infection with H7N9 live bird market is the main source of the virus have been reported cases, 79% of the patients had history of exposure to poultry; H7N9 virus transmission is mainly through the respiratory tract; more than 60% of patients are relatively poor immunity of elderly patients, so old that get this disease the most important risk factors.

                Li Lanjuan academicians believe that the most important thing is prevention of H7N9 we have to raise awareness of influenza. Not cold, pay attention to health care. Strengthening exercises to improve physical fitness. In addition, the contact birds should pay attention to protection, not in favor of the live chickens and ducks to take home. To completely impossible without touching poultry, rural areas where poultry or to a pet. But if there are duck plague fowl plague appeared to timely reporting and timely detection.

                As to whether the farmers market to wear masks? The province of human infection with H7N9 avian influenza expert panel is not very recommended because the market of ordinary masks unable to isolate the virus, only a doctor in the isolation ward of N95 masks to block the use of H7N9, but the N95 masks airtight, people will be wearing uncomfortable, not suitable for long wear.

                Shaoxing, Jiaxing patients too ill patients than re-

                Main is found too late

                Work in Shaoxing Liu XX is the first province in the second half confirmed cases of human infection H7N9 avian influenza, aged 35, in a textile company engaged in design work.

                October 7, he was vomiting, fever symptoms, a start, let my colleagues to buy him some cold medicine. No effect, but also to the local township hospital treatment, continuous still **** up two days brine temperature 40 ℃ and down. October 11, which is four days after the onset of illness, he was transferred to the First People's Hospital of Shaoxing City, was eventually diagnosed with human H7N9 avian influenza infection.

                Zhejiang University School of Medicine Department of Infectious Diseases, First Affiliated Hospital chief physician Joseph Leung, deputy director of Shaoxing in treatment. Liangzhu Ren said, Shaoxing, the patient has made three artificial liver, artificial lung is currently being used, but is still in a state of shock, oxygen saturation is low. To his current physical condition, can not be transferred only in a local hospital's intensive care unit treatment, Zhejiang Province, where people infected with H7N9 bird flu expert team almost every day to the hospital to guide treatment.

                Currently looking for a new medical expert effective treatments, including injections to patients trying to have recovered patient's serum, the serum of these patients with a person infected with H7N9 avian influenza virus.

                But Zhejiang University First Hospital have been recovered more than thirty cases of human infection with H7N9 bird flu blood test found that only patients with the comfort of a rehabilitation Hangzhou serum antibodies are relatively strong, suitable for the treatment, but the comfort of a patient's blood type and Shaoxing Ryu a blood group incompatibility, can not be paired.

                Liangzhu Ren said that, relatively speaking, patients reported yesterday Jiaxing Chen Moumou, although very ill, still in a coma, low blood pressure, but because of earlier detection and diagnosis, so the condition is more stable.

                It also reminds us that the early detection, early diagnosis, early treatment is the key to prevention and treatment of H7N9. Once a fever higher than 38 ℃, do not delay, to have fever clinics to immediately above the county hospital.

                      Zhejiang Provincial Health Department 23 Bulletin, Zhejiang new case of human infection of H7N9 avian influenza.

                      Patients Moumou, male, aged 67, farmer, now living in Xiuzhou. Incidence on October 16, Jiaxing now a hospital for treatment.

Jiaxing experts on clinical manifestations, epidemiological and laboratory test results are discussed, the diagnosis confirmed human cases of avian influenza H7N9 infection.

                      Currently, the patient was seriously ill, hospitals are in active treatment.

                      This is the second last Tuesday Zhejiang Shaoxing Liu found after infection, the second half of the second case of H7N9 bird flu.

                      Chickens at home

                      Fever six days fever

                      23, Zhejiang University Master Professor Ren Fangjiang ICU of a hospital interview with reporters, said Chen Jiaxing farmers, fever six days to subside and then invited him to a local doctor consultation. At that time, he saw some of the indicators of the disease, it is highly suspected viral infection, it is recommended to enable patients to immediately make H7N9 virus.

                      Professor Fang Jiang said judge Chen viral infection that is based on the following symptoms, such as: fever, low white blood cells, patients with body aches, headache, nausea, vomiting and so on. He advised the public once these symptoms, try not to delay the disease at home, go to the hospital.
                      In addition to these characteristics of viral infections, the experts also learned that Chen's special occupation - home chickens, ducks trafficking in the line of business.

                      Chen's throat swab samples were sent yesterday morning, Zhejiang CDC retest, noon detected positive results. Afternoon, the provincial health department announced the news.

                      Last night, the provincial health department also sent Zhejiang University, deputy director of a hospital infection went to Joseph Leung Jiaxing, where Chen.

                      Leung Wai Fung said: H7N9 virus attack or the patient's lungs, "Legionella pneumophila" This feature is still so relevant researchers to understand. It is understood that Mr. Chen is a serious lung infection, relying on ventilator to maintain the oxygen input, because the body is not enough oxygen, he had hypotension, resulting in kidney damage.

                      As Mr. Chan body usually good, formerly with hypertension, heart disease is not detached, doctors say, the best effort to rescue.

                      Shaoxing Liu critical condition

                      Accept the artificial heart-lung rescue

                      Last week in Shaoxing confirmed H7N9 avian influenza virus infection Liu, the group adopted a "four anti-two balancing" treatment strategy, because the disease is relatively heavy, the situation remains relatively Liu critical. On the 20th, the hospital he used ECMO (artificial heart-lung system), use the machine temporarily took over his heart and lung function, so that cardiopulmonary stress relief, to "rehabilitate" and wait for the chances of recovery.

                      The first half of this year, many H7N9 ECMO patients are relying on this instrument, survived the virus most rampant that a few days, then back to health.

                      Autumn virus more active

                      Do not direct contact with live birds public

                      Late autumn weather, just a week consecutive two cases of H7N9 bird flu. In this regard, the provincial disease control experts to make predictions again: H7N9 virus will further active, sporadic cases will continue to occur.

                      Why? Experts believe that, because the next autumn temperatures, the virus suitable for survival.

                      Chen Zhi, deputy director of the provincial CDC Ping said, H7N9 avian influenza virus infection source is now relatively clear, is derived from poultry. He reminded everyone that if the farmer's market, try not to touch with bare hands, killing live birds.

                      Zhejiang likes to eat live chickens and ducks, the selection, do not stand too close, do not touch it directly and avoid contact with poultry feathers, secretions. Whether contact with live poultry, farms came back, I remember a good wash. (Reporter Chen Sheng Rui edit papers Evening News)
