The World Health Organization and CDC China, along with U.S. CDC are working together to investigate the avian influenza A (H7N9) virus cases detected in China. At this time, no cases of human infection with avian influenza A (H7N9) viruses have been detected in the United States. Rapid detection and characterization of novel influenza viruses remain a critical component of national efforts to prevent further cases, evaluate clinical illness associated with them, and assess any ability for these viruses to spread among humans. During this COCA Conference Call, a CDC subject matter expert will provide an update on the current H7N9 situation in China, review interim avian influenza A (H7N9) recommendations for clinicians and state and local health departments related to case investigation, testing, infection control, and treatment, and discuss what CDC is doing to closely monitor the situation.
