H7N9 Case in Taiwan

Read about it here.

“Oh, no big deal!” you might say. “Just another case of flu. Nothing to see. Move along here.” The man has been in the hospital since April 16 in critical condition. Suppose the critical care units in the hospital were unavailable? Remember how SARS was shutting down Canadian hospitals? I think we’re going to see that again. If memory serves me correctly, it was Taiwan/Canadian airline traffic that spread it.

It is killing about 1/5 of the people that are infected if the Chinese numbers are correct.
