#H7N9 Comments....Vietnam has to have had human infectiions

I find it so hard to believe with all the smuggling of poultry across the border in Vietnam, from China, that there has been NO human infections with H7N9.  Below is an excerpt from the CDC Health Alert Network update I made in the previous post.

End Notes:    

1 As of June 3, 2013, China was the only country where H7N9 viruses were known to be circulating in animals or where human cases have become infected. Patients with direct or close contact with wild birds or poultry, or animal settings, such as live poultry markets while traveling in these areas should be strongly considered for H7N9 testing. For more information on countries affected, please see the CDC avian influenza A (H7N9) information page at
