How this will help

Influenza viruses circulating in animals pose threats to human health. Humans can become ill when infected with viruses from animal sources, such as avian influenza virus subtypes H5N1 and H9N2 and swine influenza virus subtypes H1N1 and H3N2. The primary risk factor for human infection appears to be direct or indirect exposure to infected live or dead animals or contaminated environments.HighlightsAvian influenza A(H7N9) virusLatest updatesCumulative number of confirmed human cases of avian influenza A(H5N1) reported to WHO12 March 2013Global maps: areas with confirmed human cases for avian influenza A(H5N1) reported to WHO12 March 2013Human-Animal Interface risk assessment summary12 March 2013H5N1 avian influenza: timeline of major eventspdf, 582kb1
