News 4: New swine flu strain ‘something to be aware of’ UT Health San Antonio expert says
Dr. Jan Patterson, Infectious Diseases, discusses a new strain of the flu carried by pigs. She says it’s a mutated version of the swine flu that emerged in 2009.
“This strain has been increasing since 2016 so it’s been a very gradual thing,” said Patterson.
Patterson says a timetable for when this virus could spread is hard to predict.
