Lab tests in China have confirmed 11 more H7N9 influenza infections over the past 3 days, including a fatal case, and Hong Kong has confirmed an H7N9 death in a previously reported case.

Those dead from the virus are a woman from Zhejiang province and a man from Hong Kong who got sick after visiting the mainland.

New H7N9 case reports are steadily piling up in eastern China, where a second wave of infections is well under way amid a ramp-up of street market activity ahead of the Lunar New Year later this month. The new cases are from three recent H7N9 hot spots in eastern China: Guangdong province, Zhejiang province, and the city of Shanghai.

Six of the newest cases are in men and five are in women. Patients’ ages range from 28 to 78. Among the survivors, five are in critical condition, two are listed as severe, and three are stable.
