China's H7N9 bird flu virus spread to a new province on April 14, with state media reporting two human cases in central Henan just west of the area where the disease has been centred. Until April 13, when one case was reported in the capital of Beijing, all other instances had occurred in the eastern city of Shanghai and nearby Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Anhui provinces hundreds of miles (kilometres) away.
