Scientists have alerted the public of a new flu virus resident in Chinese pigs, saying it has become even more infectious and dangerous to humans and needs to be closely monitored so it does not become another pandemic.

Reuters, however, reports that the study by the scientists said the virus threat is not imminent. The discovery was made when a team of researchers assessed influenza viruses found in pigs from 2011 to 2018.

They found a G4 strain of H1N1 which has all the features of being a pandemic. The paper of the study was published by the US Journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

It was also discovered that people who work on pig farms have a high amount of the virus in their bloodstreams, adding that it is important to monitor workers in the swine industry.

There was also the fear associated with the risk of the virus affecting Chinese regions where many live closely with farms, slaughterhouses, and wet markets.

It should be noted that in 2009, China restricted international flights so that the outbreak of avian H1N1 does not affect other countries.
