    The good times just keep rolling..
    • new strain of flu
    • has the potential to become pandemic
    • emerged recently and is carried by pigs, but can infect humans
    • researchers are concerned that it could mutate further so that it can spread easily from person to person, and trigger a global outbreak
    • say it has "all the hallmarks" of being highly adapted to infect humans
    • as it's new, people could have little or no immunity to the virus
