H7N9 International Airport Alert: Strong Indication of H7N9 Travel Out Of Hong Kong


On December 20th a Hong Kong resident was diagnosed as having an upper respiratory infection after she

 "presented with fever, chills, rigor, sputum, sore throat, runny nose and headache" 

While still sick, on December 25 she traveled to Dubai; her traveling companion(s) were also showing upper repository symptoms.

On December 26th , while still in Dubai, she developed loose stools, a symptom common with H7N9 patients.

On December 29th she returned to Hong Kong and was admitted to the Emergency Hospital with persistent systems (her traveling companions recovered).

We see this as a clear case of a possible H7N9 infected group of people traveling overseas while actively shedding virus. It is a case which shows there are no export controls on infected air travel in Hong Kong.

Dubai is the Gateway to Europe For H7N9
