New strain of flu found in China has potential to become a pandemic, scientists warn

 9:30 AM London time:  

09:30 a.m. London time: Scientists have identified a new strain of flu carried by pigs in China that they say has the potential to become a pandemic.

The new strain is descended from the type of flu that emerged in 2009, known as “swine flu,” that caused the first global flu pandemic in 40 years.

The scientists, from several Chinese universities and the China’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said the new strain of flu, which they called “G4 EA H1N1,” is a variation of swine flu, and includes the “G4″ genotype that has become predominant in swine populations since 2016.
