OIE Confirms HPAI H7N9 In Hunan Province


Earlier today, in China MOA: High Mortality In Poultry Infected With H7N9 In Hunan Province, we looked at a report highly suggestive of an HPAI H7N9 outbreak in Hunan Province, China.

Significant if true, because this would be the first detection of this mutated virus outside of Guangdong province, where it was first reported a little over a month ago.

This afternoon the OIE has confirmed that assumption with the following notification

This latest detection of HPAI H7N9 is a little over 300 miles north and west of the first outbreak reported in  Meizhou city, Guangdong province.
