One person has died in the Chinese capital Beijing as a result of the newest strain of bird flu in the country, the Municipal Commission of Health and Family Planning said Thursday.

In a statement, the commission said two new people were diagnosed with H7N9 bird flu in Beijing. One patient died last Saturday and another is in the hospital receiving treatment.

No other information was released other than the fact that both people had direct contact with live poultry.

Data from the commission show five people have been infected the H7N9 bird flu strain so far this year in Beijing.

Authorities warned locals to stay away from live poultry, and to make sure food is completely cooked before consumption.
