In China, in the eastern Chinese province of Jiangsu, the world’s first case of human infection with avian influenza H10N3 was detected.

A 41-year-old man from Zhenjiang City has been infected, according to the State Committee on Hygiene and Health of the People’s Republic of China.

At the end of April, he felt a fever, a few days later, due to a worsening of his condition, he went to the doctor and was hospitalized.

Laboratory tests showed that he contracted a type of bird flu that had not yet been transmitted to humans. How exactly the infection occurred is not clear.

H10N3 descended from birds, genome analysis showed that the virus could not effectively infect humans.
