A new strain of flu that has the potential to become a pandemic has been identified in China by scientists according to the BBC https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-53218704
. It emerged recently and is carried by pigs, but can infect humans, they say.
While it is not an immediate problem, they say, it has "all the hallmarks" of being highly adapted to infect humans and needs close monitoring.
As it's new, people could have little or no immunity to the virus.
