Six of the 46 cases reported in the province have resulted in death, while nine people have been discharged from the hospital after making a full recovery.

"Few of the newly confirmed patients are in critical condition," said Li Lanjuan, who is in charge of H7N9 treatment at the First Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University

She said the epidemic is expected to come under control in Zhejiang due to the closure of live poultry markets and increasing temperatures.

Of the 19 people who had close contact with the two patients, none have shown any abnormal symptoms so far.
