Two men aged 87 and 27 died after being infected with H7N9 avian influenza - a sub-type not transmitted to humans previously.

The National Health and Family Planning Commission said a 35-year-old woman in Anhui was in a critical condition after being infected last month. She had been in contact with birds, while the younger man in Shanghai worked as a butcher, the state-backed Health News said on its website yesterday, suggesting a transmission route.
