VDU’s blog: H7N9 hasn’t left, it’s just been building capacity… [UPDATED WITH NEW WHO DON]

The H7N9 cycle wasn\’t broken when the markets were shut in 2013; it was just temporarily halted.

We know that these birds have multiple influenza viruses in them including H9N2, H5N1 and H7N9.

The conditions for the emergence of viruses we already know, and those we have yet to meet, continue to be created and maintained.

The spectre of \”the next pandemic\” will not get the banishment it deserves while the live bird market system continues as it has. It\’s just our luck that may run out as it did for those infected by H7N9.
