Swine flu

In between the battling with the existing Corona Virus all over the world, China came with a new virus having pandemic potential.

A new strain of flu that has the potential to become pandemic has been identified in China by scientists. It emerged recently and is carried by pigs, but can infect humans, they said.
The researchers are concerned that it could mutate further so that it can spread from person to person, and trigger a global outbreak again.

The new flu strain that has been identified in China is similar to 2009 swine flu, but with some new changes. The virus which the researchers call G4 EA H1N1, can grow and multiply in the cells of human airways.

They found the infection in people who worked in abattoirs and the swine industry in China.
