      Unlike the previous 2 weeks there are zero H7N9 cases reported so far today in any Chinese provinces in a daily report.

        The WHO has stated that it is ceasing daily updates unless there is a significant change e.g there is a change in the genetic makeup of H7N9 or a new outbreak area is involved (there is to be a lesser emphasis on numbers of new cases). I wonder if this also extends to China updates; if so, we may have some large periods of time before additional information is made available.

        Addendum: it seems this concern is unfounded so far. China is still reporting cases, it is just the WHO who plans to reduce frequency of reports.
