HONG KONG A new strain of the H1N1 swine flu virus is spreading silently in workers on pig farms in China and should be urgently controlled to avoid another pandemic, a team of scientists says in a new study.
H1N1 is highly transmissible and spread around the world in 2009, killing about 285,000 people and morphing into seasonal flu.
The newer strain, known as G4 EA H1N1, has been common on Chinas pig farms since 2016 and replicates efficiently in human airways, according to the study published on Monday. So far, it has infected some people without causing disease, but health experts fear that could change without warning.
G4 viruses have all the essential hallmarks of a candidate pandemic virus, the study said, adding that controlling the spread in pigs and closely monitoring human populations should be urgently implemented.

Yay! Now we get to bully the “non-essentials” again!
Not that surprising, they’ve had their pig population decimated in recent years - pork producers there have to be desperate and cutting corners.
Wow....I said we’d see a second virus release...right about now... LOL. So not funny or happy.
So will China get to skate on this one, too? Stick with the NYT for further updates. I’m sure they’ll stay on top of this ...
Deep state / UN / Chicom propaganda. The global Elites want to reduce the population to 500 million And create a Chicom style non-Democratic system of governance. Selective releasing of American funded Bio weapons, Seems to be the method of choice
Ban China travel in and out until the get their act together.
If you pay attention to the MSM these virses are washing over us like waves on a beach. I used to just ignore this crap, but the CV19 reponse doesn’t allow me to do that.
These folks have got to stop or we have, as a culture, got to wise up. Ignore this chit and move on with your life, like we used to do. Death is a part of life. It always has been. Get used to it.
So long as it doesn’t spread to here. But with all the Chinese illegals sneaking in, I doubt we’ll be spared from this.
All viruses will mostly disappear after Nov. 3rd. You can count on it.
Not really a shock. We have been shipping breeding hogs to China over the past few months. Their hog population was pretty much killed off last summer and fall. When CV came out, there were actually people who were surprised it wasnt a swine flu. H1N1 had another variation in the past: Spanish Flu.
But, we are all skilled in how to deal with this stuff.
What is it with these fricken Chinese?
What kind of “Scientists”?
Oh boy, just in time for the elections.
Very obvious what’s going on here. They can’t beat Trump and they know it.
SURPRISE SURPRISE SURPRISE! Gates, CCP, Soros, NWO & (under the table) Fauci have been hard at work to be sure there’s mail-in CHEATED VOTE in NOV! FOR SURE! And where is CIA, FBI and our vast intel - chasing Gen Flynn, Stone and those violent ‘criminals! Same with ANTIFA and BLM - all happening under the radar and our intel knows nothing about it! SH*T!
gee that sure is gelpful to the globalist totalitarians
