H10N7 is a subtype of the species Influenza A virus (sometimes called bird flu virus). In 2004 in Egypt H10N7 was reported for the first time in humans. It caused illness in two one-year old infants, residents of Ismaillia, Egypt. One child’s father is a poultry merchant.[1]

Additional recommended knowledge

The first reported H10N7 outbreak in the US occurred in Minnesota on two turkey farms in 1979 and on a third in 1980.

Antigenically indistinguishable viruses were isolated from healthy mallards on a pond adjacent to the turkey farms"[2]
