Skip to comments.Flu virus with 'pandemic potential' found in China
Posted on 06/29/2020 4:20:55 PM PDT by RomanSoldier19
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.

WTF ever China
Go to Hell and Burn...
Biological warfare has arrived. It used to be the atom humanity feared, but now the enemy can preserve the enemy’s infrastructure while killing off the inhabitants.
Doesn’t help that the democRATS are in bed with the Chicoms.
OH NOS...Sluggos got the Wu Two Flu!
We need to thoroughly sterilize China.
It’ll arrive in October, right on queue....
ha, beat me to October Surprise Fly Flu

Which seal, trumpet or bowl are we looking at here?
Didnt we just transport pigs to China via one of our major airlines?
It was in the news
Oh, boy. Another made in China product.
Boycott Chinese goods and cut off all Chinese nationals from entry into the country until we can get their attention on a few ground rules.
Let there be a total separation between the US and China and a better observance of the Chinese who live in the US. In case of a war with China (there will be one)we can’t afford a Chinese fifth column.
Never heard of Drone flu.
Indeed. Another lab -created virus. Why are Americans so stupid?
The media lies, Democrats lie, and most idiots are taken in.
Build your immune systems, my FRiends.
“Never heard of Drone flu.”
Google drone spreading pig virus. Here’s one:
> Im starting to believe a Higher Power may be involved.<
This is exactly what I thought when we started to shut down early this year. It is not over yet — there are still rumors of war. I just hope that Higher Power is on our side.
All these virus come from China. China likes to mess with virus’s in labs. I think there is a connection. All activity involving China needs to be banned.
