people found the newest bird flu, H7N9, in both Shanghai and Anhui. If people are infected, they will first have a fever. However, we still don’t know if the virus has the feature of passing it through human-beings. This is the first time people found patients that are infected with H7N9 in the world. We still can’t judge its biological characteristics, pathogenicity and transmissibility.
Bird flu is usually caused by influenza virus and is prevalent among birds. Only some of the
malignant viruses affect people. According to its pathogenicity, it can be separated in to 3 levels, highly pathogenic bird flu, LPAIV and non pathogenic bird flu. The virus exists in digestive tracts, respiratory tracts and viscera tissues.
Until now, according to the official mission, there are 28 confirmed cases in China.
People are worried about their lives. So we should protect ourselves.
We should keep air fresh and current, go to crowded and breathless places less, wash hands frequently, have a good rest, drink more water, cover our mouth when we are sneezing or coughing, eat less meat and don’t touch your eyes, ears and noseswith dirty hands.
