    Human infection with avian influenza A(H7N9) virus – China
    Disease outbreak news
    19 January 2016

    On 11 January 2016, the National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC) of China notified WHO of 10 additional laboratory-confirmed cases of human infection with avian influenza A (H7N9) virus, including 3 deaths.
    The cases were reported in the provinces of Zhejiang (6), Jiangsu (2), Guangdong (1) and Jiangxi (1). The median age of the patients is 52.5 years old (ranging from 29 to 77 years old). The cases are split equally between men and women. One of the patients is a health care worker. All cases reported a history of exposure to live poultry.
    Detailed information concerning these cases can be found in a separate document (see related links).

    I hope this is a sign that the World Health Organization (WHO) will continue to provide individual case details going into the future. Too often in the past, when the WHO posted aggregate case details for disease outbreaks, the details of individual cases were never made publicly available.

    I think case #1 is included in the December numbers (despite the November onset date) from China NFPC because:

    1) . Zhejiang province announced 1 case for November link:
