Early Transmission Dynamics in Wuhan, China, of Novel Coronavirus–Infected Pneumonia
There is evidence that human-to-human transmission has occurred among close contacts since the middle of December 2019 and considerable efforts to reduce transmission will be required to control outbreaks if similar dynamics apply elsewhere. Expand

Novel reassortant H7N9 viruses were associated with severe and fatal respiratory disease in three patients, and all three patients died. Expand
Epidemiology of human infections with avian influenza A(H7N9) virus in China.
Most persons with confirmed H7N9 virus infection had severe lower respiratory tract illness, were epidemiologically unrelated, and had a history of recent exposure to poultry. Expand
Clinical and epidemiological characteristics of a fatal case of avian influenza A H10N8 virus infection: a descriptive study
The first human infection with a novel reassortant avian influenza A H10N8 virus is reported, which was isolated from a patient from Nanchang City, China and caused human infection and could have been associated with the death of a patient. Expand
Comparative epidemiology of human infections with avian influenza A H7N9 and H5N1 viruses in China: a population-based study of laboratory-confirmed cases
The sex ratios in urban compared with rural cases are consistent with exposure to poultry driving the risk of infection--a higher risk in men was only recorded in urban areas but not in rural areas, and the increased risk for men was of a similar magnitude for H7N9 and H5N1. Expand
Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease in China: Patterns of Spread and Transmissibility
Hand, foot, and mouth disease is a moderately transmittable infectious disease, mainly among preschool children, and enterovirus 71 was responsible for most severe cases and fatalities in China. Expand
An emerging recombinant human enterovirus 71 responsible for the 2008 outbreak of Hand Foot and Mouth Disease in Fuyang city of China
An emerging recombinant HEV71 was responsible for the HFMD outbreak in Fuyang City of China, 2008, and was confirmed as the etiological pathogen of the outbreak. Expand
Preliminary Report: Epidemiology of the Avian Influenza A (H7N9) Outbreak in China

Biological features of novel avian influenza A (H7N9) virus
It is shown that the emerging H7N9 avian influenza virus poses a potentially high risk to humans, and current seasonal vaccination could not provide protection. Expand
Epidemic characteristics of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome in China, 2006–2012
HFRS in China was still a natural focal disease with relatively high morbidity and fatality and its distribution and epidemic trends had also changed and surveillance measures should be improved and strengthened to reduce HFRS infection in China. Expand
