15/05/18 Researchers fear deadly new pig virus could spread to humans

A recently identified pig virus could pose a potentially lethal threat to human populations, research suggests. Lab tests show that porcine deltacoronavirus, first detected in China in 2012, readily jumps between the cells of different species including humans. The pathogen shows similarities to the deadly viruses responsible for Sars (severe acute respiratory syndrome) and Mers (Middle East respiratory syndrome) which together have claimed more than 1,000 lives.
