- New type of swine flu found
- The entire symptoms of an epidemic exist
- There is no evidence yet of spreading from humans to humans
Researchers in China Swine flu A new type of has been found, which may start a new epidemic. This fact has been revealed in a published study in the US Science Journal PNAS on Monday. This new type of flu is named G4 and it is derived from the same strain of H1N1, which had a pandemic in 2009. Scientists at China’s Center of Disease Control and Prevention have discovered this. They say that in this new type all the symptoms of infecting humans are present.
Explain that between 2011 and 2018, researchers took nasal swab of 30,000 pigs from 10 Chinese provinces and Veterinarian hospitals, out of which they isolated 179 swine flu viruses. Most of these viruses are of new type, which have been found on a large scale in pigs after 2016.
After this, the researchers made many experiments of this virus on the naval. Since these symptoms like fever, cough and sneeze are quite common from humans, therefore, Naval is very much used in flu tests. In this research, it was revealed that G4 spread more infection in Naval than other flu viruses. The test also revealed that the compatibility of the body’s resistance to seasonal flu is not very effective against the G4.
Blood tests by researchers have found that antibodies were made after exposure to the virus, but 10.4 percent of the people working on the pigs farm had already been infected. It was also found that 4.4 percent of the general population has also been affected by it. This means that the virus has passed from animals to humans, but there is no evidence that it can pass from humans to humans. Researchers believe that this virus present in human body can increase its adaptability according to their body, which increases the risk of epidemic in humans. Scientists have advised to strictly monitor people working with pigs.
