Kathy Neuzil, MD, MPH, highlights the new influenza strain, A H7N9, adding that as a global influenza community "we are better prepared for this then we ever have been before."

Neuzil explains that right now there is no indication of person-to-person transmission but the outbreak is in the early stages. However, there have been quick responses by local authorities, WHO and CDC to investigate this particular influenza strain.

H7N9 appears to be a disease of birds that is spreading to humans through direct contact with them. However, there are no indications that the strain has occurred outside of China.
