All 11 WHO confirmed cases prior to the mild case reported on April 5 were classified as fatal or critical.  WHO’s updates have reported 21 cases and six fatalities, but today they tweeted the confirmation of 3 more cases, including 1 more death.  Thus, the WHO confirmed total is 24 cases and 7 deaths. Three of the cases have been cited as mild and one case was stable.  However, none of the confirmed cases have been discharged, so the case fatality rate remains at 100%.

The above translation describes the eighth death.  The concentraion of cases and deaths in and around Shanghai exceeds previous reports of H5N1 bird flu cases.
