H7N9 more deadly than SARS: experts

The H7N9 strain of avian influenza is more lethal than the coronavirus that caused the global SARS outbreak in 2003, a National Taiwan University Hospital doctor said.

Citing a University of Hong Kong report, Huang Li-min, head of the hospital’s Department of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, said the H7N9 virus can develop very quickly and has an estimated case fatality rate of more than 10 percent.
“This rate is higher than that of the SARS virus,” which the WHO estimates is approximately 8 percent, Huang said.

According to the Centers for Disease Control’s Web site, there have been 114 confirmed cases of H7N9 in China with 23 deaths as of 6pm on Friday, which translates into a mortality rate of about 20 percent.
