Here we go again? Another shutdown coming?
As the world continues to deal with the Wuhan coronavirus, researchers are warning about another strain of the flu that has the potential to turn into a pandemic. Pigs are the source of the strain but have the potential to be transmitted to humans, the BBC reported. Because of how new the strain is, the chances of humans having immunity to it is little to none.

This new strain of the flu, called G4 EA H1N1, is said to be similar to the swine flu, which came from China in 2009. The humans that are being infected with the new strain, as of now, work in China's pig industry.

No, we have Covid19 now, This one is a different virus called G4 EA H1N1. According to Forbes, NYT, Newsweek and a litany of BBC and other publications, this is a different virus. Google G4 EA H1N1.

Not my words. Perhaps I should have changed the authors wording of what I copied and pasted so as not offend the delicate sensibilities of the PC & speech police crowd. What I posted was for the information of the readers of this board as to what may be coming. I don't view everything through a PC/speech police prism. My apologies to all the citizens of Wuhan that read this forum board that I may have offended.

Yeah, I like to read my posts before I copy and paste...seems like there was someone over the weekend who re-"posted" a video without watching it or listening to it closely...no sweat Oz

Oh I read it alright, I'm just not wired with a PC censor that automatically sounds the SJW 'I'm offended' alarm.

Which brings us full-circle again to why we are going to remind our members of why the segregation of "all-things-softball" from "most-things-political" is how it needs to be around here ... Thank you ...
