December 23, 2013

Guangdong Provincial Government yesterday held a press conference to explain the preventive measures, experts mentioned early diagnosis, medications are still effective against avian flu. Today, the province's provincial government has also decided to live bird markets closed for disinfection before the Spring Festival this month on the 31st and then closed for disinfection day there, but stressed that the poultry farms through quarantine are safe and reliable, but not for live chickens tested positive avian flu, is prohibited without the whole Guangdong Province trading of live poultry.
  Rapid diagnosis is not ideal
  Since their discovery was first reported in August, six cases of infection of H7N9 avian influenza cases 441 close contacts, medical observation and detection etiology are no unusual or someone infected, so the present situation in Guangdong or spread of the disease from spreading The possibility is very low, and no human to human transmission like appearance, but it is expected there will still be sporadic cases.
  Zhong Nanshan said in a press conference, H7N9 bird flu confirmed by the onset to take the longest 13 days, and more cases of bird flu are more severe in patients in Shenzhen, for example, immediate treatment after admission, not very late, but the disease is still developing rapidly. He also considered the effect of rapid diagnostic tests for the virus is not ideal, some patients admitted to hospital three times after the test was testing out the bird flu virus, so a delay of more than patients diagnosed affect the treatment, resulting in two of them worsening. He believes that genetic testing must be referred to the PCR can be effectively detected. When asked about the opportunity to appear around the H10N8 and H7N9 cases, if two viruses simultaneously, will have a more serious situation, he responded that moment we can see the situation, while not occur in case, but ten micros.
