China on “New” G4 Strain of Swine Flu

China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs claims that the new G4 strain of swine flu is not new.

The group says this strain is less contagious than recent reports have shown. He claims the media interpreted the study in an exaggerated and non-factual way. According to the Chinese Ag Ministry, the study is too small to reflect an accurate representation and this strain does not infect humans to the point of causing disease.

The World Health Organization has been monitoring this strain since 2011.
