So the virus "has all the essential properties to infect humans", explain the scientists . The study is based on data the researchers collected between 2011 and 2018 from 30,000 swabs from pigs in slaughterhouses in ten Chinese provinces. During the analysis, 179 different swine flu viruses were isolated. Most fall under a new type of virus that has been detected in pigs since 2016.

The study is "a reminder that we are constantly at risk of reoccurrence of zoonotic pathogens and that livestock with which humans have more contact than wild animals can serve as a source of important pandemic viruses," said James Wood, director the Department of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Cambridge in the UK, as reported by n-tv.
