H7N9 snapdate: cumulative case chart by region

Click on image to enlarge.
In this update - a mere 2 or 3 days after the last, Zhejiang province continues to stand-out as the place to acquire a severe H7N9 infection. Shanghai and Guangdong province have slowed. Apart from most recent cases being in severe or critical condition, most have contact with poultry.

The WHO confirmations have ~15 cases yet to list (see FluTracker's list for the latest figures)- there data include dates of onset which are great to have and may change some of the placements of those data slightly. 

Just out of interest, H7N9 Week#46 and #47 yielded (to date) 25 and 21 cases, respectively.  This is currently Week #49, by my counter.
