Scientists find out why H1N1 plagues Chinese - China News - SINA English Scientists find out why H1N1 plagues Chinese British and Chinese scientists have found a genetic variant which explains why Chinese people may be more vulnerable to the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu. It may also help explain why new strains of flu virus often emerge first in Asia. "Understanding why some people may be worse affected than others is crucial in improving our ability to manage flu epidemics and to prevent people dying from the virus," said Tao Dong at Britain's Oxford University, who led the study. Less than 1 percent of Caucasians are thought to have the gene alteration, which has previously been linked to severe influenza. Yet about 25 percent of Chinese people have it The scientists analyzed 83 patients admitted to a Beijing hospital during the 2009-2010 swine flu pandemic. Of those with serious complications such as pneumonia, respiratory or kidney failure I am pretty confident that if India correct some mad pigs, dead birds and throw to China before attack , few days later, 25% soldiers will lose ability. even more if they marinade them in Ganges river before use them.
