Shaanxi Province Reports 4th H7N9 Case In A Week
















#12,339


Shaanxi province - which up until a week ago had never reported an H7N9 infection - reports their 4th case in a week, this time from the capital city; Xi'an.  Of the three previous cases, 2 were from nearby Xianyang City, while the third was from Baoji City which lies 170 km to the west.
Today's (translated) report comes from the Xi'an Health and Family Planning Commission website.
A common thread with three of these four recent cases has been an onset of symptoms in the last half of April, and roughly a week's hospitalization and treatment before being tested for the H7N9 virus.  
The one exception, who tested positive within 72 hours of admission, was the 2nd case from Xianyang City.

First the statement from the Xi'an Government website, then I'll return with a bit more.
