Wet Market Poultry Transmitting H7N9 Bird Flu To Humans In China

Researchers have confirmed that the A H7N9 bird flu virus, which began in February 2013, was transmitted from chickens at a wet poultry market to humans, according to a new study published in the The Lancet.

Wet markets, which are common in Asian countries, are live animal markets.

A H7N9 avian influenza (bird flu) has already infected around 108 people and killed 22 in several different parts of China since its emergence. The first reported case of human illness was in the Shanghai region, however, since then A H7N9 has spread south to the province of Zhejiang and north to Beijing.

Following the admission to hospital of a 39 year old patient infected with the A H7N9 virus, a team of researchers, led by Professor Lanjuan Li, of Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China, and Professor Professor Kwok-Yung Yuen of the University of Hong Kong, China, carried out retrospective testing among a total of 486 patients who reported symptoms of respiratory infection.
