Human Infection with Avian Influenza A(H7N9)

Human Infection with Avian Influenza A(H7N9)
Situation update as of 23 October 2015

On 14 October 2015, the National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC) of China notified WHO of 2 laboratory-confirmed cases of human infection with avian influenza A(H7N9) virus. The cases are a 55-year-old female and a 53-year-old male, with onset dates of 18 September and 21 September, respectively. Both cases had exposure to poultry and live poultry markets. No epidemiological link between the cases was reported. The cases were reported from 2 municipalities (Huzhou city and Jinhua city) in Zhejiang province.

WHO is continuing to assess the epidemiological situation and will conduct further risk assessments with new information. Overall, the public health risk from avian influenza A(H7N9) viruses has not changed.

Further sporadic human cases of avian influenza A(H7N9) infection are expected in affected and possibly neighbouring areas. Should human cases from affected areas travel internationally, their infection may be detected in another country during or after arrival. If this were to occur, community level spread is considered unlikely as the virus does not have the ability to transmit easily among humans.

Human cases of avian influenza A(H7N9) virus infection to date

A total of 571 laboratory-confirmed cases of human infection with avian influenza A(H7N9) virus, including 212 deaths, have been reported to WHO: 568 cases from China including 552 cases by the China National Health and Family Planning Commission, four (4) cases reported by the Taipei Centers for Disease Control (Taipei CDC), and twelve (12) cases reported by the Centre for Health Protection, Hong Kong SAR. One (1) case in a Chinese traveller reported by Malaysia, and two (2) in travelers reported by Canada. The two cases reported from Canada were travellers returning from China on 12 Jan 2015.
