In 2013, two episodes of influenza emerged in china and caused worldwide concern. A new h7N9 avian Influenza Virus (AIV) first appeared in china on February 19, 2013. By August 31, 2013, the virus had spread to ten provinces and two metropolitan cities. Of 134 patients with h7N9 influenza, 45 died. From then on, epidemics emerged sporadically in china and resulted in several victims. On November 30, 2013, a 73-year-old woman presented with an influenza-like illness. She developed multiple organ failure and died 9 d after the onset of disease. A novel reassortant AIV, h10N8, was isolated from a tracheal aspirate specimen that was obtained from the patient 7 d after onset. This case was the first human case of influenza A subtype h10N8. On 4 February, 2014, another death due to h10N8 avian influenza was reported in Jiangxi Province, china.
