A brand new virus has been discovered by scientists in China which experts believe could trigger a brand new global pandemic. According to a story posted by BBC, the virus was found in pigs and could infect humans.

Scientists worry that this virus can spread, and eventually transmit from human to human which is a carbon copy of what the COVID-19 virus is doing. The group of scientists stated that it has "all the hallmarks" of the type of virus that spreads rapidly and could lead to a rapidly uncontrollable health crisis on a global level. Since it is a new virus, humans have little to no antibodies to defend themselves against this particular virus.
