: 06/30/2020 - 10:35

A new strain of swine flu which has the potential to spread to humans has been identified.

Researchers in China have found it's similar to the one that caused a pandemic in 2009.

They detected the new virus after analysing 30,000 nasal swabs from pigs in slaughterhouses.

Other experts have raised caution, insisting there's no imminent threat of a new global outbreak.
