China has confirmed a new human case of the deadly H7N9 strain of bird flu, the country's first report of an infection since August, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Wednesday.

A 35-year-old man in Shaoxing in China's eastern province of Zhejiang has been hospitalised with the virus and is in critical condition, WHO said. Zhejiang has recorded the highest number of H7N9 infections anywhere in China.
