Concern at "unexpected" Chinese H5N1 death - an isolated case?

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

One of the two H5N1-related deaths reported in China over the last week has been greeted with particular concern. It was reported in Guangdong province, where no outbreaks in poultry have been recorded since 2004. It also occurred, reportedly, in an urban setting, making transmission from live poultry less likely. On the one hand, this raises the possibility of human-to-human transmission; on the other, it could mean that the province's current clean bill of health may be incorrect.
