In another bit of news regarding bird flu (aka avian influenza), the H7N9 strain of the virus has infected a citizen of British Columbia who recently traveled to China. This release comes just a few days after H5N1 had been confirmed in a duck in northern Washington. Certainly coincidence, but the discovery of the presence of both strains in North America – both for the first time – is daunting.
