According to the WHO, all three cases of infection with influenza have occurred in China. Two of these cases were registered last year.
The WHO has said the Guangdong Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported the third infection late last month but did not give details of the woman’s death. According to WHO, the woman was suffering from pneumonia. Apart from this, he had many other diseases. She was also in contact with live poultry. He was admitted to the hospital but died there.
The World Health Organization said that this is the first case of death in the world from H3N8 avian influenza, the virus of bird flu. The organization says that sporadic infections among people with bird flu are common in China, where avian flu viruses continue to circulate in large numbers of poultry and wild bird populations.
WHO said samples collected from the wet market visited by the woman before she became ill have tested positive for influenza A (H3). The report states that this market could be the source of the woman’s infection. The organization has said that this type of infection has not been found in any other person who came in contact with that woman.
