Demographics of Hong Kong

The territory's population in 2011 is 7.07 million, with an average annual growth rate of 0.6% over the previous five years.[3] Residents from mainland China do not have the right of abode in Hong Kong, nor are they allowed to enter the territory freely.[94] However, the influx of immigrants from mainland China, approximating 45,000 per year, is a significant contributor to its population growth – a daily quota of 150 Mainland Chinese with family ties in Hong Kong are granted a "one way permit".[172] Life expectancy in Hong Kong is 79.16 years for males and 84.79 years for females as of 2009, making it one of the highest life expectancies in the world.[2]

International city, Dense population, lots of older folks, seems like a great spot for H7N9 to spread. Hope not.

Hong Kong Confirms Second Human Case of H7N9 Bird Flu

HONG KONG—Within just five days, Hong Kong confirmed the city's second human case of the deadly H7N9 bird flu, though authorities contend that the risk of an outbreak remains low.

The government said late Friday that an 80-year-old man, who resides in the neighboring city of Shenzhen, was infected with the bird flu virus. The elderly man's family members brought him to a Hong Kong hospital on Tuesday for treatment of diabetes and heart disease, though he didn't show fever symptoms until Friday.

Authorities said they are still investigating whether the man had come into intact with live poultry. The H7N9 strain of bird flu was confirmed to have made the jump from birds to humans for the first time in March, when China's state media reported that two people in Shanghai had died after being infected with the virus in February.

The government announced on Friday a second person – an 80-year-old mainland Chinese male — had contracted the deadly flu, the second in Hong Kong a week. The 19 people quarantined, including five family members, 13 contacts from a local hospital and the taxi driver who took him to the hospital, will be isolated for 10 days.

I agree. I read somewhere a few years back that some variation of the bird flu is likely going to be the one that mutates and becomes able to be spread human to human. With the death rate that H7N9 has, we would be in serious trouble.

Shenzhen man in critical condition with H7N9

A 38-year-old man has been hospitalized in the Chinese city of Shenzhen with H7N9 avian flu, the fourth such case from Guangdong province in the last several days, authorities announced today.

The man got sick with a fever and cough on Dec 9 and was seen at a local clinic and hospital, according to a statement today from Hong Kong's Centre for Health Protection (CHP). His respiratory samples tested positive for the virus at the Shenzhen Center for Disease Control on Dec 17, and Guangdong health officials confirmed the findings the next day.

He is hospitalized in critical condition. The man is the first known H7N9 case from Shenzhen, though two patients from the city were recently diagnosed and treated for H7N9 infections after arriving in Hong Kong. The detection of the virus in three environmental samples led to the temporary closure of live-poultry markets in one of Shenzhen's districts.

Over the past week or so, three other H7N9 patients have been confirmed in Guangdong province: a 63-year-old man and 65-year-old woman from Yangjiang and a 36-year-old man from Dongguan.

The new case from China would lift the global total from the novel virus to 146 cases, which includes 45 deaths.

H7N9 has mutated, may spread from human to human: expert

Shanghai, Jan. 11 (CNA) Chinese researchers have discovered mutations in the new strain of avian influenza A, known as H7N9, and have found that the virus has the ability to spread from human to human, the latest issue of China's Southern Metropolis Weekly reported.

The report said that H5N1 and H7N9 have been two of the the most lethal avian influenza viruses for humans in recent years. Since the first case of human influenza A H5N1 was reported in 1997 in Hong Kong, the virus has affected more than 60 countries around the world, with a fatality rate of 60 percent.

If this flu starts spreading H2H folks, you better have a game plan to stay clear of people. At a 40 - 60% mortality rate, no matter the age or physical shape, your chances are not great.

I'd be quitting work, pulling my kids from school and heading to my camp for 12 - 18 months. I'd emerge with my healthy family once things got better.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has been informed of four additional laboratory-confirmed cases of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in Saudi Arabia. Two cases are female health workers from Riyadh who have not reported any symptoms.

The fourth case is a 73-year-old male from Riyadh with underlying chronic diseases who died on Dec. 18, 2013, three days after being hospitalized. He had exposure to animals but no travel history.

Globally, from September 2012 to date, WHO has been informed of a total of 170 laboratory-confirmed cases of infection with MERS-CoV, including 72 deaths.

Indeed. I looked up my regions pandemic preparedness plan back when H7N9 first reared it's nasty head. In my area, they will not close schools quickly enough, not by a mile.

Good to see you Vic.
No Govt. will act fast enough, especially if it spreads fairly swiftly. The best thing to do is what we already do. Keep watching until you know the time is right and then make your move.

My uncle (no, not the GLP version, but my real uncle) died yesterday from influenza.

It was H1N1. He became sick the first week of January & went downhill from there. He ended up with pneumonia in both lungs, was on a ventilator & feeding tube; then his kidneys started to shut down. We decided to remove him from life support yesterday.

He lived in southern Michigan.

I think some strains are worse than other & he stubbornly refused to go to the doc early on. He even refused the collodial silver I offered to make & drive 8 hours to administer to him. Once he realized how bad things were it was too late.

I know we all dislike modern medicine & big pharma, but sometimes it is necessary to accept help. The collodial I offered might have been enough to dampen the virulence & allow him to pull through with a doctors help.

It was so bad, they quarantined him & did not allow anyone who had not had the flu vaccine to visit. Several of my cousins (his children) were not vaccinated & were unable to see their father before he passed.

Awful all around.
