SHANGHAI — Malls across this city of 20 million were buzzing with shoppers on Friday afternoon, indicating that so far consumer confidence has not been shaken by an outbreak of a rare strain of bird flu that has claimed six lives over the past week.
Fourteen people have been infected with the H7N9 avian flu virus since Sunday, the state-run Xinhua News Agency reported. Six cases were in Shanghai while others who tested positive for the virus were in neighboring Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui provinces. There is no evidence so far of human-to-human transmission.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
