Case 1 euro a, female, 4 years old, kindergarten children, now living Huaiji County, Zhaoqing City. February 3 confirmed cases of human infection of H7N9 avian influenza, the patient’s condition is currently stable, treated at a local hospital sentinel.

The above translation from the February 4 update from the Guangdong Department of Health indicates that Huai H7N9 bird flu cluster has grown to three with the addition of another child, 4F. Although the above description does not cite the town, the above case involving another child that is mild or stable and in the same location as a recent confirmed adult (29M) strongly suggests that the above 4F will be linked to the current cluster in Huai town in Huaiji County in Zhaoging City.

The growing cluster, combined with the withholding of sequences and the relationships between cluster members, continues to raise pandemic concerns.
