Description:This 2013 image depicts a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) scientist measuring the amount of H7N9 virus that has been grown and harvested in CDC’s laboratory.
Human infections with avian influenza (AI, or “bird flu”) are rare but do occur, most commonly after exposure to infected poultry (Bird-to-human spread). Limited person-to-person spread of bird flu is thought to have occurred rarely in the past, most notably with avian influenza A (H5N1). Based on this previous experience, some limited human-to-human spread of this H7N9 virus would not be surprising. Most important, however, is that this transmission not be sustained (ongoing).
