WHO: China H7N9 bird flu outbreak tops 100 cases, Taiwan still free of H7N9

The World Health Organization (WHO) was notified by Chinese authorities of more cases of laboratory-confirmed  human infection with avian influenza A(H7N9) virus, according to a WHO update today.

The China National Health and Family Planning Commission reported six additional cases plus one fatality, putting the total case count over the century mark–102 confirmed cases to date.

Five are from Zhejiang Province and one is from Shanghai Municipality.

With the addition of the a fatal case from Shanghai, and the death of a previously reported patient, the total death count stands at 20 (nearly a 20 percent case fatality).

Of the 102 cases, 70 remain hospitalized for their illness.

In Taiwan, health authorities say the country is still free of H7N9. According to Chou Jih-haw, deputy director-general of the DOH’s Centers for Disease Control (CDC), “There have been no animals detected with the H7N9 virus, nor have there been any confirmed cases of human infection in our country.”

However, because of a Facebook posting claiming that a patient who traveled to China died, Taiwanese authorities announced they will start fining those who start such rumors and hoaxes.

Anyone spreading rumors about the disease could be fined up to NT$500,000 (US$16,787.75), the Department of Health (DOH) said Friday.

In a recent poll in Taiwan, seven out of 10 people surveyed say they are worried about H7N9.

According to a recently conducted telephone survey, 71% of the people interviewed worry the spread of the H7N9 virus to Taiwan, 60% said they are willing to receive the H7N9 vaccine when it is available in the future, more than 60% said they still eat poultry and eggs, more than 30% have reduced consumption of poultry and eggs, 71% are pleased with the current government response to the outbreak, and 75% are confident in government’s actions towards disease prevention in the future.

  1. William H. Depperman says:

    The USA Department of Biological Warfare has Developed the H7N9
    So-Called “Bird Flu,” Designed to Spreads Easily and Widely in Birds but
    Which China has so far Quarantined like it Did with SARS a Previous USA
    Biowarfare Agent which the USA Released in China in 2002-2003! Unlike
    H5N1 “Bird Flu,” H7N9 Does Not Kill Birds, but does Kill a tiny Percentage
    Of Genetically Susceptible People at the Same Level of Virulence as H5N1!
    40% of Victims of Virulent H7N9 Infection Had NO Contact With Birds!

    In March 2013 a new H7N9 supposed “Bird Flu” was reported in China, where it was indubitably released in Eastern China by USA operatives, who now have easy access there into China. The Xinhua News Agency reported that of 47,801 samples which had been collected from 1000 poultry markets, habitats, and farms across China, ONLY 39 (!) TESTED POSITIVE FOR H7N9! China has stated that at this point that H7N9 is confined almost entirely to a tiny number of live poultry markets—where the USA Biowarfare operatives apparently released it. From other reports it has to be assumed that the USA has also infected some pigeons and other birds in China to make it appear to be “widespread among birds,” exactly as they did with the AIDS lentivirus (see below)) using cell culture adaptation techniques explained herein to infect cats (!), and other species, which never ever had any lentiviruses in all recorded history prior to the USA launching of the AIDS Biowarfare operation in 1979! H7N9 spreads easily and widely in birds but unlike H5N1 does NOT kill birds. This accomplishment took a lot of work by the USA Biowarfare criminals at Fort Detrick and the Center For Disease Control (creation actually) and Prevention (propagation actually). Forty percent of the victims of virulent H7N9 infection had NO CONTACT WITH BIRDS! (New York Times, (April 19, 2013) The USA Department of Biological Warfare has designed this H7N9 so-called “Bird Flu” to use birds merely as a vector of transmission, but which does not kill its bird vector in order to allow this new H7N9 Bioweapon to spread more easily and much more widely than its H5N1 creation because its spread is NOT blocked by the death of the birds it infects. This took a LOT of work by the depraved USA Biowarfare criminals.

    Although it has been reported that H7N9 does not spread from person to person that is another BIG LIE, the same Big Lie that falsely claimed that H5N1 was not spread from person to person. The H7N9 and the H5N1 both cause virulent symptoms including death in people with the genetic susceptibility. That means that the H7N9 now in circulation (!) undoubtedly spreads between humans who POSSESS that genetic susceptibility in the same way that H5N1 spreads between humans with the genetic susceptibility! This includes family members and some relatives of infected victims and anyone else with the genetic susceptibility. A supposed “expert W.H.O. spokesman,” Gregory Hartl, a deliberately chosen total nonentity, falsely insisted otherwise with the ludicrous Big Lie: “If 2 family members develop H7N9 they probably got it from the same bird!” (New York Times, Ibid) Yes, he really said that! The newly created H7N9 “Bird Flu” is also just as highly contagious in humans who are NOT genetically susceptible to developing virulent symptoms as is the H5N1 Virus, where 7% of the 500 million rural Chinese exhibit antibodies—35 million people—who experienced “colds” or sub-clinical infections upon their initial contact with that virus. (See above: Shortridge, 1992!) There is also no “natural host” of the H7N9 “Bird Flu” any more than there is a “natural host” for the H5N1 virus. These are laboratory creations by the USA being developed as population reduction weapons of worldwide mass murder. The USA-led world capitalist dictatorship apparently hopes that their new H7N9 virus will be somewhat harder for the People’s Republic of China (PRC) to contain and defend against. In 2005-2006 the PRC immediately vaccinated all of their 14.2 billion poultry TWICE against the H5N1 “Bird Flu” and in less than a year exported millions of vaccine doses for poultry to multiple countries! The PRC has also manufactured millions of doses of human vaccine for H5N1, which they have at the ready! In comparison the capitalists say that they could only have a small amount of vaccine “for (their new) H7N9 “Bird Flu,” which would take months to manufacture privately.” (Associated Press, April 4, 2013)

    After H7N9 was first discovered in pigeons at a market in Shanghai, the PRC has taken the initial short-term measure of closing poultry markets and “culling” poultry and bird flocks in China (BBC, April 5, 2013) before developing a vaccine for the H7N9 virus, which may not be necessary. The USA undoubtedly has at the ready a strain of their brand new H7N9 “Bird Flu” which causes virulent symptoms for all those it infects, not just those with the genetic susceptibility, but is holding back from releasing it presently for several reasons. The USA wants to gauge the Chinese response and also undoubtedly there is debate between the USA Biological Warfare Establishment and the Obama Regime over how and when precisely they should release one of their super virulent virus—and which virus? (See below)—as an adjunct to their Economic War of Extermination now begun in earnest in the USA and Europe with their “Sequester” and “Save the Euro” campaigns. The capitalists’ economic warfare has four (4) targets in the USA: 1.) Targeted Depression of the Working Class and Poor, 2.) A non-stop Escalation of home foreclosures, 3.) Obamacare, the so-called “Affordable Care Act,” which is the precise opposite and is the textbook definition of a scam, which turns all healthcare over to the HMO parasites, which take over 35% or more in PROFITS accounting for virtually ALL of supposed “increased healthcare costs,” and cuts $716 billion from Medicare and 4.) “Biofuels,” which has nothing whatsoever to do with “energy independence” or “energy efficiency,” while destroying internal combustion engines. “Biofuels” is nothing but a CONSPIRACY designed to raise food prices, create food shortages and cause mass starvation, which has already begun in Africa. Capitalism is fundamentally based on war, mass murder, crime and subjugation to steal new resources and new markets to increase private profits. If the capitalists have a weapon they will invariably use it. End-Stage Capitalism is an extremely dangerous period where all technology is used against the masses.
