With scientists the world over watching Avian Flu H5 N1 for signs that it has started to pass easily from human to human a new strain of Avian Flu has been detected.
Two men, one aged 87 and the other 27 have died in Shanghai after been infected with H7N9, a form never known previously to have been passed to humans. Although from the same area there is no connection between the men. A third victim, a 35 year old woman from Anhul province which is close by is critically ill in the hospital.
Currently there is no vaccine to protect against H7N9 and doctors are working around the clock to find a suitable treatment regimen. Both the dead men reported with coughs and fever before developing pneumonia and succumbing to the disease.
