New Swine Flu: According to a study published on Monday in the US science journal PNAS, researchers in China (Researchers in China) have discovered a new type of swine flu, a new epidemic. (New Pandemic) can be caused. This new Swine Flu is named G-4, which is genetically derived from the H1N1 Strain, which caused an Pandemic in 2009. . Scientists at Chinese universities and the authors of China’s Center of Disease Control and Prevention say that it has all the signs of being highly susceptible to infecting humans.
From 2011 to 2018, researchers took 30,000 nasal swabs from pigs in slaughterhouses in 10 Chinese provinces, and in a veterinary hospital they allowed 179 swine flu viruses to be isolated. The majority of these were of a new type, which have been dominant among pigs since 2016.
The researchers then carried out various experiments in their search. During this period G4 is considered highly contagious, as it is capable of causing more severe symptoms in human cells, such as fever, cough and sneeze etc. Also read: How to strengthen your immune system?

Tests have also shown that any type of immunity does not provide protection to humans from G4 when infected with seasonal flu. This virus has already passed from animals to humans, but so far no evidence has been revealed that it can spread from human to human and may be the main concern of scientists. Researchers have written – It is a matter of concern that the G4 virus will advance human infection, human adaptation and pose the risk of human epidemic.
