2013 May - Infection prevention and control during health care for probable or confirmed cases of novel coronavirus (nCoV) infection
World Health Organization; 2013 May 6
WHO has developed new interim guidance to provide up-to-date information and evidence-based recommendations for the safe care of patients with probable or confirmed novel coronavirus (nCoV) infection.
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations; 2013 May 3
H7N9 is a new subtype of avian influenza virus. The current H7N9 virus is a reassortant (i.e. mix) of viruses previously detected in wild birds and poultry. The recent event in China represents the first ever report of H7N9 virus in humans..
2013 Apr - US CDC Interim Guidance on the Use of Antiviral Agents for Treatment of Human Infections with Avian Influenza A (H7N9)
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; 2013 Apr 18.
This interim guidance provides recommendations for antiviral treatment of confirmed cases, probable cases, and cases under investigation of human infection with avian influenza A(H7N9) virus in the United States.
World Health Organization: Geneva
The epidemiology of influenza A(H7N9) virus among animals, including the main reservoirs of infection among animals and the extent of geographic spread, is not yet established. So far, there is no evidence of sustained human-to-human transmission. However, the two possible family clusters suggest that limited human-to-human transmission may occur where there is close contact between cases and other individuals, as occurs in families and, potentially, healthcare settings. Moreover, the genetic changes seen among these viruses suggesting adaptation to mammals is of concern, and further adaptation may occur.
So far, 161 national and international societies, 1,157 hospitals, and over 1,200 healthcare workers are supporting the World Sepsis Declaration.
