The world still continues to struggle with the pandemic Covid-19, which claimed the lives of more than 500 thousand people around the world. Meanwhile, scientists have discovered in China a new strain of swine flu, which in the future can also lead to serious pandemics. About it writes BBC.
According to a study published in the journal of the National Academy of Sciences of the UK, the spread of a virus are pigs, but it can also be contagious to humans. Scientists fear that over time the virus can mutate and become as contagious as Covid-19, and cause another pandemic.
Despite the fact that until the situation is under control, scientists are urged not to treat their discovery lightly, continuously monitor changes and alert. This, according to them, can prevent a new pandemic in the future.
