Yep - while we can never tell which one will make the jump, this virus is definitely padding out it's resume nicely. And now it's been consistently found in up to 30% of Chinese wet markets tested - the place where humans seem to be at most risk to become infected.
I find it even more disturbing that it's clearly entrenched in Guangdong because of that particular province's past role in the emergence of H5N1 and SARS - all the right conditions appear to be in place there to allow novel strains to further mutate to H2H forms.
