TORONTO - Canadian health authorities say they have diagnosed a case of H7N9 bird flu in a British Columbia woman who recently returned from China.

It's the first time this particular type of bird flu has been found in North America.

A senior public health official in British Columbia says a man who travelled with the infected person was recently sick as well.

Dr. Bonnie Henry says additional testing is being done to determine if the second person was also infected.

Henry says the two people are from B.C.'s Lower Mainland.

Neither of the two people were sick enough to require hospitalization and both are recovering.

Federal Health Minister Rona Ambrose says the risk to Canadians is low because this strain of bird flu does not transmit easily from person to person.

Nearly 500 human infections with this strain of bird flu have occurred since the virus first emerged in China in 2013 and about a third of those cases have died.

Canada resident tests positive for H7N9 avian flu virus
VANCOUVER Mon Jan 26, 2015 2:39pm EST

New outbreak of avian flu found in Washington state

(Reuters) - A resident of the Canadian province of British Columbia has tested positive for the H7N9 avian flu virus in the first documented case of the infection in a human in North America, the federal government said in a statement on Monday.

The person had returned to Canada from China and is recovering from the illness in self-isolation, the Public Health Agency of Canada said in a statement.

"The risk to Canadians of getting sick with H7N9 is very low as evidence suggests that it does not transmit easily from person-to-person," the agency said.
