    a risk with virus from Pakistan re-infecting China in 2011?

    Does "a risk with virus from Pakistan re-infecting China in 2011" mean "a risk because the Pakistan's originated virus infected China again in 2011"?

    Context:

    In 2012, Polio remains officially endemic in four countries - Afghanistan, Nigeria, Pakistan and India, which is on the verge of being removed from the list having not had a case since January 2011. Despite so much progress, polio remains a risk with virus from Pakistan re-infecting China in 2011, which had been polio free for more than a decade.

    China had been polio free for over ten years, but in 2011 it came back to China, and Pakistan was the source. Therefore, polio remains a risk because even countries that have successfully eradicated it may be re-infected because it hasn't been universally eradicated. In a globalised society, people may travel in infected areas or people from those areas may travel abroad, so it is hard to contain it completely.
