The new kind of virus
The new type of swine is said to have pandemic potential, according to researchers. The new virus is a descendent of the 2009 virus that caused the H1N1 pandemic, and has “all the essential hallmarks of a candidate pandemic virus,” according to a study, published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). The report said it is not an immediate problem but has “all the hallmarks” of being highly adapted to infect humans.
Actress Sonam Kapoor, who diminished a version of the swine flu in 2015, has reacted to news of a new strain of the flu having been discovered in China. Sonam took to her Instagram stories and wrote that she wishes this development isn’t true.
