No Evidence That New Bird Flu Passes Between People: Study
Date:4/25/2013

e measures such as temporary closure of live bird markets, comprehensive programs of surveillance, culling and segregation of poultry species, and possibly vaccination of poultry.

World Health Organization (WHO) officials said Wednesday that they are concerned about the ability of the H7N9 virus to jump from birds to humans and to infect birds without causing obvious symptoms, according to the Associated Press.

"This is definitely one of the most lethal influenza viruses we have seen so far," Dr. Keiji Fukuda, the top influenza expert at WHO, said during a briefing in Beijing. However, a large number of milder cases may also be going undetected, he added. WHO officials investigated the H7N9 cases with Chinese authorities this week, the AP reported.

More than 100 people in China have been infected with the H7N9 virus, with most getting seriously sick and more than 20 dying, the AP noted. The first case in Taiwan was confirmed on Wednesday, a 53-year-old man who became sick after returning from a visit to the eastern Chinese province of Jiangsu.
