It's case of H7N9

A new case of Avian Influenza H7N9 has been reported in Hebei, China. A 61 year old female.

I suspect we will see H7N9 lurking around in China for a while before it becomes efficient at human to human transmission. It is highly transmissible in ferrets, which is a good model for humans, so I surmise at some point, it will become more efficient at human to human.

Nothing to panic about, but, H7N9 has not gone away.

well said - if you read the book World War z about a Zombie pandemic the author has it starting in some remote part of China and spreading across the world.
Of course in the film they had to change that to not offend the potentially huge Chinese movie going market.
In 'Survivors' a butter-fingered chinaman drops a lab flask full of germs and wipes out nearly everybody on earth..;)
