Jan 6 A 62-year-old man died in Hong Kong from
bird flu on Friday, the second such death this winter, the
Hospital Authority said.
The man, who travelled to the southern Chinese city of
Guangzhou in mid-December and was hospitalized in the
neighbouring city of Dongguan earlier this week, died from H7N9.
Hong Kong has confirmed three human cases of H7N9 in three
weeks as fears grow over the spread of the disease in South
Korea, Japan and mainland China.
