Health authorities in east China's Jiangxi province confirmed on Thursday [13 Feb 2014] another human case of H10N8, a new strain of [avian influenza virus.]

The patient, a 75-year-old man in Nanchang, capital of Jiangxi, developed symptoms and was admitted to hospital on 4 Feb 2014. The patient died on 8 Feb 2014, the provincial health and family planning department announced. Health experts called on the public to stay away from live poultry and to have good hygiene habits.

On 17 Dec 2013, local health authorities in Jiangxi confirmed the 1st human infection of H10N8, when a 73-year-old woman died from the virus. Health experts then said H10N8 was known among birds, but human infection had never been reported before.

CHP notified by NHFPC of human fatal case of avian influenza A(H10N8) in Jiangxi
************************************************************
The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH) today (December 17) received notification from the National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC) of a human fatal case of avian influenza A(H10N8) affecting a woman aged 73 in Jiangxi.

The immunocompromised patient with underlying illnesses was admitted to a local hospital on November 30 for treatment. Her clinical diagnosis was severe pneumonia and she passed away on December 6.

According to the relevant authority, the patient had visited a local live poultry market. Her home and close contacts, who are under medical surveillance, have remained asymptomatic and no abnormalities have been found so far.

"Influenza A(H10) is currently not a local statutorily notifiable infectious disease but the Public Health Laboratory Services Branch of the CHP is capable of detecting this virus by culture or genetic testing. No confirmed human cases have been recorded so far in Hong Kong," a spokesman for the CHP said.

The CHP will follow-up with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Mainland health authorities to obtain more information on the case........CHP notified by NHFPC


... by the time we do get the real statistics, the problem will be on our doorstep. Not much we can do but sit and wait. I am keeping an eye on this one. It is zoonotic and that is a worry.

After tests were carried out of the area, no source was determined.



However, on collecting samples from the live poultry market that the woman visited, scientists found no H10N8 virus present, meaning the infection source cannot be identified.



Furthermore, the researchers say the JX346 virus has a mutation in the PB2 gene, which scientists believe is linked to increased infection and adaption in mammals. This means the virus has the potential to become more infectious in humans.

Pandemic potential ‘should not be underestimated’

That thread had no mention if the new strain referred to here. JX346 is a new strain of h10n8.

I had the swine flu in Dec 2009 and it had been in our area in So East Asia for about 4 months before. It wasn't until it hit the US and by Feb 2010 it was officially labeled H1N1. It killed a few thousand people in that country and not a peep from the Media. It doesn't really matter to the MSM unless they can exploit it for some agenda of the DEM's in the US.

well the last death isn't old news. The latest email dated Feb 2014. And more importantly, the other information also did not include the fact that the source of the infection was not determined.

thanks for sharing and that is exactly how I feel. Before we do get the statistics, (which are always minimized) it will be on our doorstep.

According to a separate Feb. 4 Xinhua report, China’s national poultry association, in collaboration with poultry associations in Guangdong and Guangxi provinces (Guangxi is also a major site of bird flu cases), recently sent an open letter to “governments at all levels” calling upon them to “stop reporting individual cases” of bird flu.

China Pretends Bird Flu doesn't exist

How convenient.



What’s the quickest way to make the bird flu go away?

That's a question China’s poultry industry, facing $3.3 billion in losses due to a recent outbreak of bird flu (and still reeling from almost $10 billion in losses from a spring outbreak), may have finally solved. According to a Feb. 4 report by Xinhua, China’s state-owned newswire, poultry companies and associations in Guangdong province, home to a significant percentage of China’s most recent H7N9 bird flu infections, are proposing to require local authorities drop “bird” or “avian” and simply refer to the disease as “the flu.”
