While most of the H7N9 activity we've been seeing these past two weeks has drifted north, west central Sichuan Province continues to report a steady stream of cases.
They reported their very first H7N9 cases in early February of this year, and as of today have now reported 34.

As of May 23 at 24 o'clock, the province reported a total of 34 cases of H7N9 cases.
Tuesday's HK CHP update listed only 32 cases in Sichuan, so these cases will probably be reported by the NHFPC on Friday.
