At least 5 human infections with H5N6 subtype and 2 critical condition (link in underscore) in China

Highlights

-- Live poultry markets in China surveyed for avian influenza viruses during 2014–2016

-- H5N6 has replaced H5N1 as a dominant AIV subtype in southern China, especially in ducks

-- The HA and NA genes of H5N6 show apparent lineage-specific matching patterns

-- At least 34 distinct H5N6 genotypes noted, one responsible for five human infections


Summary

Constant surveillance of live poultry markets (LPMs) is currently the best way to predict and identify emerging avian influenza viruses (AIVs) that pose a potential threat to public health. Through surveillance of LPMs from 16 provinces and municipalities in China during 2014–2016, we identified 3,174 AIV-positive samples and isolated and sequenced 1,135 AIVs covering 31 subtypes. Our analysis shows that H5N6 has replaced H5N1 as one of the dominant AIV subtypes in southern China, especially in ducks. Phylogenetic analysis reveals that H5N6 arose from reassortments of H5 and H6N6 viruses, with the hemagglutinin and neuraminidase combinations being strongly lineage specific. H5N6 viruses constitute at least 34 distinct genotypes derived from various evolutionary pathways. Notably, genotype G1.2 virus, with internal genes from the chicken H9N2/H7N9 gene pool, was responsible for at least five human H5N6 infections. Our findings highlight H5N6 AIVs as potential threats to public health and agriculture.

With H5N6 hitting South Korea, H5N8 has now hit the country and Nigeria.

H5N8 hits more farms in Europe and Iran, too.
