Influenza A (H7N9) virus update...

Xinhuanet has the latest H7N9 figures from China's National Health and Family Planning Commission. With no new cases reported this month, and just one from July reported in last month's update, the 12 provinces or municipalities that have hosted infections resulted in:
  • 134 cases (I have 136; presumably the Taiwan case and asymptomatic Beijing boy)
  • 45 deaths, up form from last month
  • 87 discharged cases leaving 2 still in hospital
  • PFC at 33.1%
I've updated by VDU H7N9 page with these numbers also.

Thanks to Crawford Kilian's Tweet for making me aware of this report.
