    New flu with 'all the hallmarks' of pandemic-causing virus spotted in China.....

    A new virus strain found in China has many scientists concerned about the potential for another pandemic.

    The new strain of the flu virus was recently spotted in pigs, but researchers believe the virus can transfer into humans. Researchers said that the virus has "all the hallmarks" of other pandemic-causing viruses in that it could be highly infectious in humans and there could be no known immunity as the virus is new to humans.


    Researchers have been preparing for an influenza-type pandemic, despite the respiratory coronavirus pandemic that the world continues to battle. They believe that this virus strain, which they've named G4 EA H1N1, is similar to the swine flu virus that spread in 2008. The strain that spread in 2008 was not as lethal because it was very similar to a strain that had spread previously, so older people had some immunity to the virus.


    The new H1N1 strain can attack the airways of an infected person and contains some differences in the virus structure from the 2008 strain. Current flu vaccines, which include protections to the 2008 H1N1, do not appear to prevent the new strain.


    Right now, we are distracted with coronavirus and rightly so. But we must not lose sight of potentially dangerous new viruses," he said. "We should not ignore it.".....snip~

    Well, let's not panic yet. The virus hasn't had human to human transmission yet. And we know how to make effective vaccines against the Influenza Virus.

    Of course current flu vaccines don't protect against this specific H1N1 because the vaccine is made from viruses that were emerging at the beginning of the Asian season or predicted to emerge so the current vaccine is for past strains, not for future ones. So, if this virus adapts to jumping from human to human, it will be included in a new vaccine.

    So, the fact that this source doesn't highlight this aspect, makes me suspect that it is an alarmist source, for some sort of political agenda.

    Good reason to keep travel to and from China shut down.

    Fear mongering. That's what this is.

    'all the hallmarks' of pandemic-causing virus

    All the hallmarks? What are those hallmarks to be precise?

    How about fact that its influenza? They're all pandemic.

    China certainly wants to hurt the USA. The only question is that why this information was created.

    We should not be doing business with the enemy. Bring it home.

    Its amazing how liberals defend china...they raged and $#@! themselves over it being called the Wuhan Virus..

    I personally believe china is doing this intentionally to weaken the world as part of their power madness
    The FBI Chief Christopher Wray made a public announcement that China is the USAs greatest threat Not russia

    But your friendly everyday democrat Politician still says Russia is stealing elections and colluding with trump and DONT YOU DARE SAY WUHAN VIRUS dats racist...

    Words cannot describe how low my opinion is of democrats
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    GROUCHO MARX,

    Shutting down travel from China for at least a couple of years would probably be a good idea. As would iron clad borders.

    We are shut out of traveling to the EU it looks like, and may be it out of China, and with a continuing recession, we can all thank Trump for his incredible lack of leadership
