The strain has largely gone under the radar and, as reported by the Mirror, the outbreak has raised questions about how much damage it could cause.

The WHO explained in a report about the situation that they were notified of a human infection on May 23. It was related to a resident of Mexico aged 59 who had no history of exposure to poultry or other animals.

He also had several other underlying medical conditions.He had already been bedridden for three weeks prior to the onset of acute symptoms of avian flu.
