. . Geographic and temporal distribution of human cases of infection with avian influenza subtypes H7N9 (circles) and H5N1 (triangles), China. A) Distribution and space-time clusters of human influenza (H7N9) and influenza (H5N1) cases, calculated by using Kulldorff’s scan statistics in SaTScan version 9.1.1 (6). B) Spatial overlap between influenza (H7N9) and influenza (H5N1) case clusters in an area bordering the provinces of Anhui and Zhejiang. C) Primary cluster of influenza (H5N1) cases in Guizhou Province (relative risk [RR] 496.60). D) Secondary cluster of influenza (H5N1) cases in Anhui and Zhejiang Provinces (RR 65.27). E) Primary (RR 78.40) and secondary clusters of influenza (H7N9) cases on the boundary of Jiangsu and Anhui Provinces (RR 64.86) and in Jiangxi Province (RR 105.67).
