The health authority in southern China's Guangdong province said on Wednesday that a single case of a human being infected with the H5N6 strain of bird flu has been reported in the city of Dongguan.
 

According to the Health Commission of Guangdong Province, the diagnosed patient surnamed Li, a 53-year-old male, is currently being treated at a designated hospital in Dongguan.
 

Experts pointed out that the H5N6 avian influenza virus is highly pathogenic to fowls. Since it was first discovered in poultry in China in 2008, it has gradually replaced the H5N1 avian influenza as the main virus prevalent in China's poultry farms and live poultry markets.
 

But in its natural state, the H5N6 avian influenza virus mainly infects birds and infections in humans rarely occur. As of the end of March 2021, only 25 human infections have been reported worldwide, and all are dispersed cases.
 

On April 12, the H5N6 avian flu was found in wild birds in Shenyang, a city in Northeast China's Liaoning Province, which marked the first confirmed cases of the flu in China this year.
 

After May 2014, H5N6 human infection cases have been reported in several places in China, including Sichuan, Guangdong, Yunnan and Jiangxi provinces, where at least four people have died.

患者李某富,男,53岁,广西柳州人,现住东莞市大岭山镇。目前患者在东莞市的定点医院积极治疗。

不要食用死禽肉。
 

不要购买来源不明的禽鸟类产品。
