United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) warned of a possible increase in cases of bird flu in the flu season

The government of China notified the World Health Organization (WHO) two new cases confirmed in the laboratory, infection with avian influenza A (H7N9).

The first patient is a boy of three years old, from Guangdong province. He became ill in late October and received treatment in hospital. The boy's health is stable.

The other case reached a farmer aged 64, Zhejiang. According to WHO data, the status of this patient is critical. In both cases, the patients had contact with chickens.

To date, WHO has been informed of 139 cases of H7N9 in humans, and 45 patients died. There is no evidence of transmission between humans.

In September, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) had warned of a possible increase in cases of bird flu in the next flu season.

According to WHO sources, the Chinese government has taken steps to control the virus, following the development of the epidemic and informing the public about the risks of contamination.

For now, the WHO does not recommend any travel restrictions or trade with the country.
