    • Don't see that on Xinhua - still reporting only 33 cases.
      But that's enough to make them work on a vaccine ready by end of year.

      H7N9 vaccine expected ready within 7 months: ministries 2013-04-11 00:28:31
      BEIJING, April 10 (Xinhua) -- As part of China's emergency response to the H7N9 bird flu on technological front, China formally launched a research project on Wednesday for developing a vaccine for H7N9.

      Jointly launched by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the National Health and Family Planning Commission here, the move is expected to make a vaccine ready within seven months, an official statement said.

      China officially confirmed the occurrence of human infection with the H7N9 virus late last month.

      So far, the country has reported a total of 33 H7N9 cases, including nine which ended in fatalities.
