The patient, a 41-year-elderly person from Zhenjiang city, is presently in a steady condition and fulfills release guidelines, the state-run CGTN TV detailed.
Chinese wellbeing specialists made light of the birdflu episode, saying the case was an inconsistent infection transmission from poultry to people, and the danger of causing a pandemic was very low.
The patient was analyzed as having the H10N3 avian flu infection on May 28, National Health Commission said in an articulation without expounding on how the man had got contaminated with the infection.
No different instances of human contamination with H10N3 have recently been accounted for universally, it said. H10N3 is a low pathogenic or generally less extreme strain of the infection in poultry and its danger spreading for an enormous scope is exceptionally low.
There are a wide range of strains of avian flu in China and some irregularly contaminate individuals, for the most part those working with poultry.
