    Again, thank you to the Hong CHP for the details on these cases.

    Because I reconcile to the provincial and central government reports using their calendar month reports I can not do much with the above information at this time. I will update our case list where I can and save this valuable case information to use at the end of the month when I can reconcile to the calendar reports.

    For instance, today Hunan province announced that they have 16 cases including 5 deaths so far for January 2017. link. The Hong Kong reports link , link. link have listed a total of 9 cases, 3 deaths for roughly the same time period. FluTrackers has 13 cases and 5 deaths for January. I will be adding the 3 newly confirmed Hunan cases to our list.

    Thank you to the Hong Kong CHP.
