 China Reports Another Death Due to Bird Flu

China has reported the death of a man from the H7N9 bird flu strain. The cases of the virus have accelerated in the year end.

The deceased man was one of two recent cases reported eastern China in the city of Yongkang in Zhejiang. The death emerged as hospitals in Hong Kong were put on high alert after a woman diagnosed with the virus was said to be in critical condition.


310 cases were diagnosed from January until December 10 this year, which include 132 deaths. Health officials in China notified the World Health Organization (WHO) of 11 new H7N9 cases, including five deaths, earlier this month.
