Guangdong reported a new human H7N9 case today, raising the total number of people infected with the fatal virus in the province to six since August.
The new patient, who is in critical condition in hospital, is a 38-year-old resident surnamed Ou in Shenzhen, according to the provincial health authority.
Ou showed symptoms of fever and cough on December 9 and went to a clinic in Nanling village of Longgang District.
On December 17, a sample from the patient tested positive for the H7N9 avian influenza virus at the Shenzhen disease control and prevention center, and the results were confirmed by provincial authorities one day later.
The patient is at the Shenzhen No 3 People's Hospital.
So far, Guangdong has confirmed six human H7N9 cases since August 10, with two in Dongguan, two in Yangjiang, one in Huizhou and one in Shenzhen. The province's first case, a 51-year-old woman in Huizhou, recovered in September after being treated in a hospital for more than one month.—Xinhua
