China reports 61 deaths from H7N9 bird flu in February
 
Beijing, March 13 (Petra) -- China reported 61 fatalities and 160 cases of human infection from H7N9 bird flu in February, the government said on Monday.

The number of fatalities is much higher than that of previous years as it brought the death toll in this winter's outbreaks to 161 since October.

While the total for last month was lower than January's 79, it was the highest number for the month of February since the deadly strain was first identified in 2013, according to data from the National Health and Family Planning Commission.

The total of 140 deaths for the first two months of 2017 alone already surpasses the annual totals for avian flu in China in recent years. In 2010, 147 people died of the H1N1 strain of the virus.
