12 #H7N9 deaths in Chinese Zhejiang province in 2014

[Wow.  I must be doing an extremely bad job of tracking.  I have one death in Zhejiang this year.  12 makes much more sense though.  Wonder where I should go to get the true figures?]


HANGZHOU, Jan. 27 (Xinhua) -- H7N9 bird flu has caused 12 deaths in east China's Zhejiang Province alone this year, local health authorities said on Monday.
From Jan. 9 to 26, Zhejiang had seen new human H7N9 cases for 18 consecutive days. The total number of infections in the province reached 49 as of Monday noon, said the provincial health and family planning commission.
Of the 49 cases, 12 people died, one person has recovered fully, and the rest remain hospitalized, according to the commission.
