Avian influenza A (H7N9) outbreak

Final update date March 15, 2019

Recently, a patient infected with bird flu A (H7N9) has occurred in China.

In response to this, Yokohama City has requested a city medical institution to provide information when consulting a patient suspected of being infected with bird flu A (H7N9).
At this time, no persistent human-to-human transmission has been confirmed, but if you return from China and have flu-like symptoms such as fever or cough, please consult your nearest medical institution immediately.

To prevent infection,

・Wash hands and disinfect alcohol frequently before meals and after toilets.
・Cover your mouth and nose with a handkerchief or tissue when coughing or sneezing.
・Do not touch or approach sick or dead birds.

But it is valid.
