The swine flu virus that Chinese scientists had reported is not novel and is a type of swine flu that is already known. This is what Executive Director of the World Health Organization’s Health Emergencies Programme Mike Ryan said during a briefing in Geneva, RIA Novosti reports.

“It is important to calm people down and tell them that this is not a new virus and that it is a virus that is under control. We're following it," he said.

According to him, the virus that Chinese scientists had reported is the already well-known strain of the Eurasian swine flu that is similar to the bird flu.
