China's deadly new #H7N9 bird flu virus may be harder to track than predecessors, scientists say

This article goes on to say that the virus could be harder to track than it's better known "cousin" which of course is the avian influenza H5N1 bird flu.  The poultry that are carrying it are not showing any symptoms....

Dr. Masato Tashiro, a WHO scientist, reports in this article that the virus appears to have mutated, and it has made it easier to infect animals (like pigs) making it alot easier to infect humans.

Not good news.
