He fell ill after he visited a wet market in the city where live chickens were on sale.

Both the Health Department of Guangdong Province and the Ministry of Health were informed about the scenario. Though this could be very serious the Chinese media has not yet reported the case. According to the statistics more than 80 people were infected with bird flu virus with 18 confirmed human cases, including 12 fatalities.
