Highlighting the fears of the bird flu H5N1, the World Health Organization (WHO) said, it was ‘deeply concerned’ about the danger of scientific information could fall into the wrong hands.
Scientists have developed a vaccine that could end the need for annual winter flu injections.
There are 3 types (A, B and C) of the influenza virus that can cause flu. Each has subtypical strain. H1N1 is a strain of the type A virus. H1N1 is what epidemiologists call a “triple reassortment” virus because it combines genes from different flu viruses, viral strains that normally affect pigs (swine flu), along with birds (avian flu) and human flu strains.
