Pigs Mutating Also? One Looks A Little Like Paul Reubens.

Experts now say that a late flu outbreak in Canada may have already caused the Swine Flu here and other places to mutate into a totally new strain.

"There are seasonal flus that are different than the Swine Flu", stated Dana Rosinsky of the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control. The flu season in Canada lasts about a month longer than the United States and remember, you don't have the summer break now in the southern hemisphere. There it's Fall heading into winter and this can spread there quickly and merge with the Swine Flu."

We have found a strain of the H3N2 virus that appears to have made a shift and could have complicated the flu picture in Mexico, which has been the epicenter of the outbreak of a new strain of the H1N1 swine flu virus. One was seen in a traveler returning from Mexico, the team at the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control reported to Pro-MED, an online forum for infectious disease experts.

The new H1N1 virus has killed at least 42 people in Mexico and two in the United States. Now a new mutant virus may be spreading globally and if so, could bring the world to the brink of a pandemic.

So if you were breathing a sigh of relief because this was letting up somewhat, get a firm grip on your bowels because if this continues into the southern hemisphere's winter season and keeps changing, there would have to be a continuing vacine update to fight it.

"Meanwhile, stated Rosinsky, "keep up the Swine Flu jokes because humor can be a big help in keeping people from a panic. I personally recommend The Spoof."
