#H7N9 Comments on Latest WHO Update of February 18, 2014

I'm not sure if the Health Departments of the Provinces are just getting lazy in their reporting, but this latest update was an eye opener.

Some examples of time span from "onset date" to "admission" to "critical condition"

Another thing I noticed was the usual "exposure to live poultry or poultry markets" was not tacked on.
This person was supposedly admitted the same day as their symptoms, and yet they died one week later.

Date of Report:  2/14/14
Name:  78(M) Lee
From:  Panyu District, Guangzhou City
Onset:  2/7
Adm:  2/7
Confirmed:  2/13

Another alarming case:
Date of Report:  2/15/14
Name:  79(M) Wei
From:  Panyu District, Guangzhou City
Onset:  2/4
Adm:  2/4 ICU Guangzhou
Confirmed:  2/14

In Anhui Province, even though the person was admitted the same day as their onset (probably not what happened), they were transferred two days later, to ICU (severe)
Date of Report:  2/17/14
Name:  63(M) Zhu
From:  Lujiang, Hefei City
Onset:  2/13
Adm:  2/13
Adm:  2/15 Transferred Hefei, severe
Confirmed:  2/16
