Potential new flu: Swine flu from China

Post by boskone » Mon Jun 29, 2020 5:04 pm

There's a new flu in China which seems to have spread from pigs to humans.

Apparently it's related to the '09 swine flu (which I still prefer to refer to as "bacon plague"), but different enough that the vaccines won't work. No word on lethality yet, but hopefully the response is a bit better than the COVID-19; that would be one hell of a 1-2 punch.
