It seems a lot of these patients lately had engaged in recent travel and the two Chinese cases were in the transportation business. If this was significant I would expect more than these few sporadic cases (unless certain people are correct about H5N1 being more common and less lethal than previously thought). Or perhaps travel itself is simply a very common activity and so there is no pattern here.
