New flu strain found in China, has potential to become pandemic

G4 EA H1N1 virus is similar to swine flu A/H1N1pdm09, but with some new changes

British scientists have identified a new strain of flu in China that has the potential to become a pandemic, BBC reports.

It is carried by pigs, but it is capable of infecting humans. That is why the researchers are concerned that the world may face another global outbreak if it does not react to the potential threat.

The new strain of the virus that has been identified in China – G4 EA H1N1 – is similar to 2009 swine flu (A/H1N1pdm09), but with some new changes.

According to scientists, it can grow and multiply in the cells that line the human airways.

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

As we reported earlier, Scientists from the University of California at San Francisco have found similarities in the structure of coronavirus and cancer.

The Covid-19 virus causes uneven convex branches to grow in infected cells – an extremely unusual structure that allows the virus to attack several cells at once. Long strands pierce holes in other cells, and the virus passes through the processes from cell to cell,” Professor Nevan Krogan, director of the Institute of Quantitative Biological Sciences at the University of California, who led the project, said.

    • You mean the same country that today the EU said they would open tourism with as long as China opened to the EU too?
      What Coronavirus? We are just asking for another Chinese virus weapon.

      • The EU are nothing but whores, open to anyone for a price. Russia and China don’t need to destroy the West, they are doing it all on their own.

          • Yeah, but we all know the EU won’t allow Ukraine back in, until Russia are allowed back in, or we’ll have the old Russophobia cries coming out of the Kremlin.

  1. Developed nations need to quarantine China indefinitely. Or until it gives up its unsafe, unhygienic and horrific food practices. Would you ever trust a people who think it normal to raise dogs for the specific purpose of eating them? And would you want to trust a thug dictatorship that still occupies Tibet, threatens Taiwan and still runs concentration camps?

    • Just reading that China have passed this Hong Kong security law. Meaning the agreements made by China to the British when they handed over Hong Kong, have been tossed in the garbage.

      • I visited HK just before the chicoms resumed control and it was a glorious experience : kind of like an oriental version of Gibraltar (another place I absolutely love). Very orderly, despite the 6m people on such a tiny island, incredible shopping and dining experiences, stunning views from Victoria Peak and a dynamic entrepreneurial atmosphere. A perfect blend of a British free trade democracy and Chinese energy. Just like the ethnic Spanish on Gibraltar, the HK Chinese are (or were) more loyal to the Queen than native British people.
        I’m so glad I went when it was great. It must be a dreadful place now, where the smell of fear blends with the smell of shit.

          • I was traveling in La some years back. Was in NO for the jazz fest and me and my party were invited to visit a farm on the Bayou somewhere near Lafayette. It was owned by a famous Cajun musician named Marc Savoy, so there was lots of music, very tasty fried catfish, crawfish and beautiful Cajun women! Perfect times. My only gripe : Dixie beer is pisswater!

            • Nobody drinks beer down south. They drink whiskey. I also did, but had to quit because of military service. Then after i lived in the Benelux for some years i started to drink wine, mainly from South Africa. Later in Denmark i added beer. Now i drink both wine and beer. On special occasions whiskey, preferably JD. 😎

  2. This is the kind of things that happen when people think its acceptable to have sex with animals.
