Dead pigs in a river...

How does the death of thousands of pigs found in the Huangpu river, relate to the H7N9 cases?

Does it relate at all (or was it due to porcine circovirus? PCV is not commonly a symptomatic infection in pigs)?

Could there be another, as yet undiscovered agent involved that is common to both outbreaks? Good job for NGS!
