So, another case has popped up in China, shocking I know...but this time it is in the Jiangsu Province. The infected individual is actually the father who of the 24-year old man who died from H5N1 infection just a few weeks ago. Interesting: the son died on Sunday December 2, and the father came down with symptoms Monday December 3. Luckily he has been under close surveilance due to the fact that he was a close contact of the recently infected deceased and is currently in the hospital undergoing treatment.
Out of the 27 confirmed cases of bird flu in China, 17 have been fatal. Uh oh.
