It’s back! After nearly two months of laying low, the H7N9 avian flu virus returned to the headlines when a 35-year-old man in Zhejiang was diagnosed yesterday. The man’s work was not related to poultry, and the circumstances of his infection have not yet been made clear.
China Daily ran two terse articles on the flu’s revival, and reports:
A 35-year-old man surnamed Liu tested positive for the H7N9 virus at the Zhejiang Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention […]
Liu, is a white-collar worker in Shaoxing who sought medical treatment on Oct 8. He is now in critical condition.
The bureau said it will make full preparations to prevent an outburst of the virus.
