China: A family cluster of H7N9 cases in Guangxi?

Hat-tip to Crosfblog:
Guangxi has reported a boy contracted the H7N9 strain of bird flu, a day after his mother was confirmed to have the virus. 

She began to feel unwell late last month while in Zhongshan in Guangdong, and returned to Nanning on January 28
Previously posted here as a family/geographical cluster.  Earlier I had also detected a geographical cluster involving the mother and previous cases, that I posted here.
