Since 2004, the H10N7 subtype avian influenza virus (AIV) has caused sporadic human infections with variable clinical symptoms world-wide. Three H10N7 subtype avian influenza viruses were isolated from chickens in live poultry markets in Eastern China in 2014. In spring 2014, increased mortality of harbor seals (Phoca vitulina), associated with infection with an influenza A(H10N7) virus, was reported in Sweden and Denmark. Within a few months, this virus spread to seals of the coastal waters of Germany and the Netherlands, causing the death of thousands of animals.
