It's Mutating: Brazil finds new strain of H1N1 virus

Brazil finds new strain of H1N1 virus

Brazilian scientists have identified a new strain of the H1N1 virus after examining samples from a patient in Sao Paulo, their institute said Tuesday.

The variant has been called A/Sao Paulo/1454/H1N1 by the Adolfo Lutz Bacteriological Institute, which compared it with samples of the A(H1N1) swine flu from California.

So much for the production on the vaccine for the OLD strain. Glaxo must be getting the seed strain for the mutating virus soon.
