China reports first human bird flu case in months
posted by admin on 11/01/07

The country has reported a total of 22 human cases of bird flu, including 14 fatalities, since 2003.

BEIJING (Reuters) - A 37-year-old farmer in eastern China has been confirmed to have contracted the H5N1 strain of bird flu, the country's first human case of avian influenza in months, the Health News said on Wednesday.

The country has reported a total of 22 human cases of bird flu, including 14 fatalities, since 2003.

In the latest case, a man surnamed Li developed symptoms of fever and pneumonia on Dec. 10 and was discharged from hospital on Saturday in Tunxi in Anhui province after a full recovery, the Health News said.

The Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed on Monday that he tested positive for the deadly H5N1 strain, the Health Ministry-run newspaper said.

People who have had close contact with Li were quarantined for medical observation until Dec. 29, it added.

There have been no bird flu outbreaks in poultry in the area, the Health News said.

China last reported a human case of bird flu in July, when a farmer died of H5N1 in the northwestern region in Xinjiang.
