SHENYANG, June 16 (Xinhua) -- Health authorities in northeast China's Liaoning Province confirmed one H7N9 case Thursday.

The male patient, 67, lives in Tiexi District of Shenyang, the provincial capital. He got a fever two or three days after disposing of some sick poultry he had raised.

The patient is receiving treatment in hospital and is in a stable condition.

H7N9 was first reported to have infected humans in March 2013 in China. Cases usually occur in winter and spring. While a large-scale outbreak is unlikely, sporadic infections have been reported.

Another three cases of H7N9 human infection were reported in Beijing and Tianjin earlier this week.
