To date, only one patient, a 4-year old boy in Shanghai, has fully recovered.

Of the 28 non-fatal cases, 19 cases are considered severe and nine are classified as mild.

The WHO says more than 760 close contacts of the confirmed cases are being closely monitored and  still say  there is no evidence of ongoing human-to-human transmission at this time.

According to Chinese Radio International’s English Service today, health authorities on Taiwan say they’re looking into 42 suspected human infections of the H7N9 bird flu. At least two of the suspected cases traveled to the mainland cities of Suzhou and Shanghai according to the report.

However, no cases have yet been confirmed on the island.
