China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE - By PAUL WELITZKIN in New York paulwelitzkin@ chinadailyusa.com

A woman from Bri­tish Columbia, con­firmed as hav­ing the first case of the H7N9 bird flu in North Amer­ica, is re­cov­er­ing well af­ter treat­ment, ac­cord­ing to health of­fi­cials.

The woman re­cently vis­ited China as did a male com­pan­ion who may also have the H7N9 flu strain, said Dr Bon­nie Henry, Bri­tish Columbia’s deputy pro­vin­cial health of­fi­cer.

“It hasn’t been con­firmed yet but we be­lieve that af­ter the ini­tial testing it will be the same re­sult as in the case of the woman,” Henry told China Daily in an in­ter­view.
