People leave the examination clinic at the Beijing Center for Disease Prevention and Control as the country deals with the H7N9 bird flu virus on April 18, 2013. China has confirmed a total of 82 human cases of H7N9 avian influenza since announcing about two weeks ago that it had found the strain in people for the first time. Health authorities in China say they do not know exactly how the virus is spreading, but it is believed to be crossing to humans from birds, triggering mass poultry culls in several cities.
