A new case of Avian Influenza H7N9 has been reported in Hebei, China. A 61 year old female.

I suspect we will see H7N9 lurking around in China for a while before it becomes efficient at human to human transmission. It is highly transmissible in ferrets, which is a good model for humans, so I surmise at some point, it will become more efficient at human to human.

Nothing to panic about, but, H7N9 has not gone away.

It appears that a case of human to human transmission has been identified in China. A daughter who was caring for her father and had no history of proximity to any other form of exposure.

Both appear to have passed from multiple organ failure within a month of diagnosis.
To make matters worse I read this today - its like straight out of the plot of a bad Zombie film - right?

I know, right? Just what we need, some jerkwad who wants to play with the pretty virus.

Or West World where nothing can possibly go wrong go wrong go wrong.
No worries, they got this....NOT.
