As the bird flu death toll continues to rise in China, there's no panic in the American medical community — yet. There is, however, much caution and uncertainty as doctors from around the world monitor the unique and deadly H7N9 virus that claimed its sixth Chinese death on Friday.
Dr. Cox stressed that Chinese authorities appear to be sharing all relevant information about the H7N9 virus and the suspected number of cases.
"There's so few cases that we don't really have a good idea of the overall severity. It's possible, of course, that only the most severe cases are being picked up and being diagnosed," said Dr. Nancy J. Cox, director of the influenza division at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
