#H7N9 may reappear later, and spread

The researchers, from the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Beijing and the University of Hong Kong, said the potential lull in H7N9 could offer health officials the chance to properly discuss and plan ahead for the possibility of the flu's return and wider spread. 

This should include plans to build healthcare capacity in the region “in view of the possibility that H7N9 could spread beyond China's borders,” they said.

“Continued vigilance and sustained intensive control efforts against the virus are need to minimise risk of human infection, which is greater than previously recognised,” they said.
