BEIJING: China reported another 8 fatalities from H7N9 bird flu since mid-February, the government said, taking the death toll so far this winter to at least 108 and stirring further concerns about the spread of the deadly virus.

China reported as many as 79 deaths from the same virus in January, the government said.

The National Health and Family Planning Commission did not disclose the location of the fatalities or the infection rates.

Chinese disease control experts have warned the public to stay alert for H7N9 avian flu, with the commission saying more than 340 cases of human infection have been reported since October. South Korea and Japan are also battling their own major outbreaks and have culled millions of chickens.
