***** Please note that this infographic of the Avian Influenza A(H7N9) virus and was updated with public source information from late 23 Apr to early 24 April 2013 CET/EST *****
Just a quick infographic update today.
In the past 24-hours there have been three more cases and one more fatality which brings the total to 108-cases including 22-deaths. This equates to a case fatality rate of 20.4%. For context SARS was 10.9%. (Note: I have updated the SARS link from the last WHO update in 2003 to a more detailed National Centre for Biotechnology Information paper from 2010. Thanks to Helen Branswell (@HelenBranswell) for providing the link.)
There has been one confirmed discharge in the past day from Henan and yesterday Sina confirmed a further three patients were discharged on Sunday. This brings the confirmed recoveries up to 14 (13%) and the mystery outpatients to just three (down from six yesterday).
The most recent fatality reported was on the 23rd April 2013 via Xinhua.
Helen Branswell made a good point via Twitter yesterday that the low amount of confirmed discharges might be lost between the various provincial hospitals.
I’ve appended her very good comments.
