Regarding another human case of avian influenza A(H7N9) notified to the CHP by the Guangdong HFPC yesterday (January 7) affecting a 31-year-old male patient in Shenzhen, the respiratory specimens of his close contact in Hong Kong who is a four-year-old girl as well as that of her 37-year-old mother both tested negative for the avian influenza A(H7N9) virus by the CHP's Public Health Laboratory Services Branch. The girl remains under quarantine.
