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

          Travellers, especially those returning from avian influenza A(H7N9)-affected areas, 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 also 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.

              Time: 2013-11-29 11:07:26 Friday Source: Editor: Wang Limei

              Yesterday, the Health Department of Zhejiang Province Bulletin, 1 new case of human infection of H7N9 avian influenza. Patients Moumou, male, 57 years old. Confirmed on November 27, and now the First Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, treatment.

              Up to now, the second half of H7N9 avian influenza infection in Zhejiang Province increased by 4 people, including one case of H7N9 bird flu in Jiaxing died.

              H7N9 bird flu, it seems lingered in Zhejiang. About to enter the winter season, H7N9 avian influenza virus in the second half of this backstroke, will do more tricks? Yesterday, the reporter interviewed experts in disease prevention and control, Zhejiang Province, the experts assure reporters that the virus is not afraid of the cold, still exists, but the public as long as the protection in place, do not worry too much.

              Patients from Angelina

              Family raised chickens 6

              Yesterday, reporters learned that Zhang is currently living in Zhejiang patient to a hospital isolation ward of the Infectious Diseases. Admitted to the ward in the first half of this year over most of the H7N9 bird flu patients.
              Joseph Leung, deputy director of the Infectious Diseases Hospital told reporters that the patient in critical condition, the lungs appeared fossilization, very optimistic.

              It is reported that Zhang pneumonia due to high fever, the 26th in the afternoon from his home to the Zhejiang Anji an emergency room visits during sudden exacerbations, respiratory failure. Hospital emergency room immediately sent to rescue him, while sampling tests. The results show that Zhang H7N9 virus were positive, confirmed infected with the H7N9 avian influenza.

              In the evening, the hospital mobilized a number of experts, has been rescued after midnight, artificial liver, artificial lung systems are used, Zhang temporarily saved lives.

              Asked history, family doctor, family raised six chickens, chickens before the disease usually is Zhang, cleaning chicken. Doctors have speculated that Zhang H7N9 avian influenza infection, probably related with these birds carry the virus.

              Second half of the four cases of H7N9 bird flu

              Unfortunately, the patient died in Jiaxing

              Since the second half of this year, Zhejiang H7N9 bird flu to the four cases. Jiaxing one case in which the patients have been died. Patient surnamed Ren, female, 64 years old, farmer, the incidence on October 30, November 4 confirmed.

              The remaining three patients, the condition is not optimistic. Patients Liu, a few days ago condition has become stable, sudden changes in condition yesterday; 2 patients Moumou condition has improved, but not yet out of danger; first four cases is now an accepted rescue Zhang Zhe.

              Why are critically ill patients in the second half? Stronger ability to replicate the virus? Or mutated? Yesterday, the reporter interviewed the Provincial Disease Control and Prevention deputy director CHEN En-fu. He said: "From the current monitoring situation, H7N9 virus does not mutate the patient's condition so heavy, in addition to virulent virus itself, but also with the age of the majority of patients with chronic diseases is too large and the original and so on.."

              Not cold virus

              Avoid contact with poultry wash their hands

              The weather forecast said that, starting today, will be substantial cooling in Zhejiang province, respiratory diseases will also enter the popular high season.

              CHEN En-fu said: Many people are concerned about how long the virus can survive in a cold environment, we do sometimes experimental virus samples stored at minus 40 degrees Celsius environment, viruses are likely to survive a few years.

              Due to the current body of the virus in poultry and external environment still exists, so people are still likely to be infected, H7N9 avian influenza may be sporadic, please take appropriate precautions.

              Experts suggest that the city's farmers market to do cleaning and disinfection, timely cleaning poultry feces, 7 to 10 days, conduct a thorough disinfection of stalls, to minimize the virus. People buy chickens and ducks, but also try not to direct contact with live birds, live poultry stalls do not stay in too long.

              Several cases of H7N9 bird flu in the second half of the patients, the majority living in rural areas, rural residents chicken duck family habits, inevitably touch. We recommend: minimize human exposure to many birds, feeding locations farther away from the people, chickens to feed ducks and wash their hands after contact with poultry, poultry droppings not cleaned of dust, it is best to wear gloves and masks, in the event of fever cold, to early treatment.

He is currently in critical condition. He is the son-in-law of the 57-year-old male from Zhejiang Province with onset on 20 November 2013, reported above.

                  On 2 December and 6 December 2013, the Centre for Health Protection (CHP), Hong Kong (China), notified WHO of two laboratory-confirmed cases of human infection with avian influenza A(H7N9) virus.

                  The first patient is a 36-year-old woman who became ill on 21 November 2013. She was admitted to hospital on 27 November 2013 and transferred to an intensive care unit on 29 November 2013. She is currently in critical condition.
