Another 5 cases

Another 5 cases this evening (Down Under time that is) from three sites. Total at 49 cases. 

One case (56M, Shanghai, Case #47) is the husband of a formerly H7N9-positive deceased woman (Case #13) - is this the first data to support human-to-human transmission of H7N9 or is it two independent avian infections that just happen to be married? 

Earlier throat swabs on this case were H7N9 NEG
