Three people have died from the H7N9 flu strain known as “avian flu” in China’s southern Guangdong province and four others have contracted the virus, the Xinhua news agency reports.

The number of “avian flu” cases in Guangdong has reached 102 since January – 32 people died and 60 recovered.

The H7N9 virus claimed around 100 lives in China in the first quarter, but the number of infections was steadily decreasing from 127 in January to 99 in February and just 24 in March, according to China’s National Health and Family Planning Commission.

Up to now, there has been no convincing evidence of human-to-human transmission of the H7N9.

One woman died and another person has been diagnosed with an infection from a bird flu virus that has never been seen in humans before, according to a study released on Wednesday in British medical journal The Lancet.
