Flu virus with ‘pandemic potential’ found in China

That would be a “NEW”, Flu Virus.

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 say.

The researchers are concerned that it could mutate further so that it can spread easily from person to person, and trigger a global outbreak.

They say it has “all the hallmarks” of being highly adapted to infect humans – and needs close monitoring.

As it’s new, people could have little or no immunity to the virus.

Pandemic threat

A bad new strain of influenza is among the top disease threats that experts are watching for, even as the world attempts to bring to an end the current coronavirus pandemic.

The last pandemic flu the world encountered – the swine flu outbreak of 2009 that began in Mexico – was less deadly than initially feared, largely because many older people had some immunity to it, probably because of its similarity to other flu viruses that had circulated years before.

That virus, called A/H1N1pdm09, is now covered by the annual flu vaccine to make sure people are protected.

The new flu strain that has been identified in China is similar to 2009 swine flu, but with some new changes.

So far, it hasn’t posed a big threat, but Prof Kin-Chow Chang and colleagues who have been studying it, say it is one to keep an eye on.

The virus, which the researchers call G4 EA H1N1, can grow and multiply in the cells that line the human airways.

They found evidence of recent infection starting in people who worked in abattoirs and the swine industry in China.

Current flu vaccines do not appear to protect against it, although they could be adapted to do so if needed.

Prof Kin-Chow Chang, who works at Nottingham University in the UK, told the BBC: “Right now we are distracted with coronavirus and rightly so. But we must not lose sight of potentially dangerous new viruses.”

While this new virus is not an immediate problem, he says: “We should not ignore it”.

The scientists write in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that measures to control the virus in pigs and closely monitor working populations should be swiftly implemented.

Prof James Wood, Head of the Department of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Cambridge, said the work “comes as a salutary reminder” that we are constantly at risk of new emergence of pathogens, and that farmed animals, with which humans have greater contact than with wildlife, may act as the source for important pandemic viruses.

  1. China needs to be nuked! All the flu virus are coming out of there, seems suspect to me! Ya wonder if they are doing this and unleashing it here? Nahhh.. they wouldn’t do that, they love us! Similar to the old swine flu? I wonder if the china man attached an ebola segment to the old strain? Or, perhaps Mongolian Hemorrhagic component that makes us bleed out or asses when we cough or sneeze. Stop all flights, kick every china man out that is a professor or student or worker that is not an American. Stop all immigration from every where. Do not allow people in even tourists. Fuck ’em. Lock this country down from the borders and start spanking the idiots that are causing problems, the damn rich kid elites. make them a shovel ready job, by handing them a shovel and force them to clean up and repair the statues correctly or face an immediate death sentence, oh and when they are finished with that, start digging ditches bitches.

    • China, specifically Western China, has always been the source of pandemic-level influenza bugs since the opening of the pre-Silk Road trade routes back in the early Egyptian Dynasty times.

      And that Swine Flu from Mexico? Most likely started in China and blew up in Mexico.

  2. I wouldn’t trust anything from the leftist BBC even if they asserted the sky
    was blue. When was the last time a “pandemic” hit the world twice in less
    than one year? I am not even buying the bullshit about the spike in COVID-
    19 cases in states that ended their lockdown orders. If you lift these stupid
    restrictions, of course, the infection rates will rise but are these increased
    numbers due to ending the shutdowns, or are they due to increased testing?

    The answer is probably neither. We now have more data on the actual death
    rate and demographic data. We all know who is most at risk and despite
    idiot Democrat governors inflating the death rate, 99.99+ percent of Americans
    survive this with little or no symptoms. If you get it, there are only two
    possibilities; You either become symptomatic or asymptomatic. In the
    infectious phase, you can spread the virus but once you recover, you cannot
    spread the disease. In fact, once you recover the only way you can test positive
    is with an antibody test.

    The cocksuckers in the liberal media love banner headlines about the death
    rate, but ignore the recovery and hospitalization rates. The death and
    hospitalization rates are falling like a rock even as more people are testing
    “positive.” Sorry dickheads, this is virology 101! The more people who get,
    the lower the death rate (which is a good thing!) This is how viruses work.

    Medical researchers have already reported that 40 to 60 percent of Americans
    are already immune due to the earlier Coronavirus epidemics. The concept
    of herd immunity seems to have escaped the Brainiacs at the CDC. If you
    want to see this epidemic end with the fewest deaths, protect the elderly,
    drop the idiotic mask edicts and instead of stimulus checks, give them
    tickets to a movie theater, a concert, or a sporting event! The question about
    the spike can be answered easily answered: How many were newly infected
    and how many recovered victims were tested for antibodies?

    When it is all over, toss all the grandchildren with antibodies in a room with
    Grandma and grandpa for a round of hugs and kisses!

    If herd immunity did not exist mankind would have died off during the
    Black Plague.

  3. Ain’t that strange, huh. Up until recently we had a flu pandemic every fucking year: the annual version of the flu virus usually started spreading from Asia, mostly from China. We were told that flocks of scientists were jetting there every year trying to get a hold of the new strain in order to create a vaccine that we should be taking soon enough for immunization so that we could successfully survive the new flu wave as soon that virus made its journey around the globe (being thus a pandemic).
    So now they’re selling us the annual new strain that WILL become pandemic as something to fear?!??

  6. Let’s have everyone wear masks! Now the ones that MAY BE effective, N95, are unavailable anywhere, at any price, if you’re not a health care organization. Home made ones, might as well be wearing a bandana cause that’s how effective they are. The ones that look like surgical masks may be more effective than wearing nothing, but has anyone tested them?

    How about the anti-body test kits that CDC/FDA let into the country WITHOUT VERIFYING THAT THEY WERE/ARE EFFECTIVE? Oh, by the way, those ineffective test kits were made … in China. Whoda thunk?

    But hey, we should just blindly follow the .gov guidance because they’re lookin’ out for us. Just like we should get a flu shot every year, despite the fact that the CDC/FDA struggle to prove that the yearly vaccine is even 40% effective and the people that administer the shot have NO CLUE what flu strains the shot is supposed to guard against. But, you should get one every year because… The flu virus mutates every year and new strains are discovered every three or four years that cross boundaries between animals and people which also mutate every year. Given that the flu virus mutates every year, how is it possible to develop a vaccine that supposedly guards against getting the virus. CDC/FDA/WHO wouldn’t be lying to us would they?

  7. We will have the possibility of new pandemics until about November 5. After that all will be quiet, for a while, if Trump wins. If Biden wins, pandemics will be a thing of the past.
