The rate of mutation for influenza does not change very much (if at all) over time, and it would not be changed by "reduction in population" or travel.

I just meant that mutated forms would not have the same ability to infect people, just because of the reduced population, travel etc.

Sorry, work is crazy and I don't post on my own time so sometimes that leads to choppy writing.
