In March 2013, the first patient infected with the avian influenza A H7N9 virus was identified in China. The infection progressed rapidly, and the patient died of ARDS. During hospitalization, the patient was suspected of having an infectious respiratory disease, and contingency plans for public health emergencies were promptly started. When the viral infection was identified, strict procedures for disinfection and protection were carried out. None of the health care workers involved in the management of the patient were infected.
