Hard to keep track of all the threats these days. H1N1 and H7N9 both seem to be getting ready for next year's anniversary - although it's anyone's guess if either (or both) will go pandemic anytime soon. H7N9 worries me more, but I don't think anyone should count H1N1 out based on it's history.

In the last year "...H7N9 mutated to become deadly for chickens. It morphed to evade vaccines. It caused almost as many infections in people as in the previous four years combined. And it's geographic spread widened, with infections in humans and poultry reported in most areas of China, including provinces bordering Vietnam and Laos. That raises the chances of the virus spreading to other countries."
