A new strain of flu that has the potential to become a 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.
While it is not an immediate problem, 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.

Let me guess.... The lab in Wuhan “found” this too?
Is it called, October Flu?

China’s bioweapons labs are working overtime.
The first “planned-demic” isn’t going as well as they’d like. It’s time for them to send over a “better” planned-demic because the Deep State wants mail-in voting in time for the 2020 election!
China and Africa seem to be the source of many virulent pathogens. They need to be quarantined.
October Sooeyprize flu...
If all the pigs and chickens in China die we have a HUGE problem. Millions will starve, so we have that to look forward to. I’m starting to believe a Higher Power may be involved.
