I am a little freaked here because my 16 yr old who never gets sick except when he went through the psytokine (sp)storm last time around was just deadly ill over Christmas with the same exact symptoms. I did not put it together, but this scares the poop out of me. He is still weak and well not well. I dont know, this is really a wake up call but I suspect the flu vaccines that do not work on this will be flying off the shelves soon. Also as it is caused by a virus the antibiotcs will NOT help witht he illness, man what a mess. Look for secondary infections that can be treated by anti-biotics. Keep me informed please.

New strain of bird flu infects 4 in China
Chinese authorities reported four new cases on Tuesday of a strain of bird flu previously unknown in humans that has already killed two people. The four new patients in the eastern Jiangsu province and a woman in Anghui province were in critical condition, Xinhua said. The four patients in Jiangsu were reportedly aged between 32 and 83 and only one 45-year-old woman had worked in the market slaughtering poultry. The two deaths were men in Shanghai aged 87 and 27 who fell sick in late February, Reuters reported. The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Monday there was no evidence that the H7N9 strain could be transmitted between people, but it is investigating the outbreak.
