Taipei, April 24 (CNA) Three hospital personnel have developed respiratory symptoms after coming into contact with Taiwan’s first confirmed case of H7N9 avian flu, the Central Epidemic Command Center said Wednesday.

All three had taken proper protective measures when providing medical care for the patient, a 53-year-old man who fell ill three days after retuning from China’s Jiangsu Province, one of the H7N9-affected areas, the center said.

A survey of the epidemic situation showed that 139 local people had come into contact with the man, a Taiwanese businessman based in Jiangsu’s Suzhou area, the center said.
