New H1N1 swine flu virus under close surveillance: WHO


Geneva: The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said that a new strain of the H1N1 swine flu virus is under close surveillance.

There are reports that the new virus is spreading fast among workers on Chinese pig farms. A group of scientists have warned that the virus should be “urgently” brought under control to prevent the start of another pandemic even as the world continues to battle with coronavirus.

Worthwhile to mention that H1N1, a highly contagious virus, had spread around the globe in 2009 and killed nearly 2,85,000 people.
