      Taiwan reports 2nd case of imported H7N9 in 2013 (update)

      2013/12/31 22:06:54
      ...
      The infected, an 86-year-old man from Jiangsu Province, is still in Taiwan receiving treatment, though most of his 25-person tour group has already returned to China, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
      ...
      The man entered Taiwan Dec. 17 and began showing symptoms two days later, starting with a loss of appetite. On Dec. 23, he reported tightness of the chest before being rushed to an emergency room the next day, where he was put on a ventilator to treat pneumonia.
      ...
      Even so, this patient's symptoms were slightly different from previously reported infections, indicating that doctors still face some difficulty in diagnosing the virus, he added.

      The man's infection could mean that H7N9 has become prevalent across all of southern China even though, puzzlingly, major duck and chicken farms in the region have been found disease-free.

      "Beware of the virus if you see any ducks in the Jiangnan (south of the Yangtze River) area," he cautioned.

                        55 people on preventive medication over H7N9 concerns

                        2014/01/02 18:19:01


                        Taipei, Jan. 2 (CNA) Fifty-five of the 163 people known to have come into close contact with a Chinese tourist infected with the H7N9 strain of avian flu have begun taking preventive medication, a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) official said Thursday.

                        Among them were three medical care providers who began to show respiratory symptoms and were asked to stay at home for self-health management, said CDC Deputy Director-General Chuang Jen-hsiang.


                        In addition, Chuang said, sputumn samples were collected from them for testing.

                        "They all tested negative," Chuang said after the examination results became available around Thursday noon, showing that none of the trio were infected with the virus.

                        The infected Chinese tourist, 86, arrived in Taipei Dec. 17 last year and was hospitalized Dec. 24 for treatment for pneumonia. He had visited major tourist destinations in seven cities and counties around Taiwan before his hospitalization.

                        The CDC confirmed Dec. 31 that the elderly man, from China's Jiangsu Province, was infected with the deadly H7N9 virus, marking Taiwan's second imported H7N9 infection.

                        Chuang said the man is currently in a "serious yet stable condition."

                        Epidemiological survey results as of Thursday morning showed that 663 people had been in contact with the man, Chuang said.

                        Of them, 163 had what doctors described as close contact with him, and had sputum samples taken for testing.

                        Moreover, 55 were deemed to at particularly high risk of infection, including his two daughters, tour guide, bus driver, hotel staff and the three medical care providers, all of whom began a 10-day course of Tamiflu Tuesday as a preventive measure, Chuang said.

                        As the virus spreads mainly through bird-to-human transmission, the possibility of those with close contact with the man falling victim to infection should be low, Chuang went on, adding that neither of the man's two daughters had so far shown any symptoms..... http://focustaiwan.tw/news/aedu/201401020024.aspx

                          TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The Centers for Disease Control (CDC, 疾病管制署) yesterday denied that three medical staff who were in close contact with a mainland Chinese patient with the H7N9 strain of influenza had also been infected with the dangerous avian flu.

                          Although the three hospital staff contracted several symptoms of the flu, test results for the H7N9 virus came back negative. Besides the three staffers, others came into contact with the patient, including his two daughters and a tour guide. Tests of those individuals were also negative, according to the CDC.
                          In addition, doctors also asked 55 other people who had contact with the patient to take Tamiflu (克流感) to prevent infection. They were also asked to carry out health management procedures for 14 days.....
