Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, testified Tuesday that an emerging virus found in pigs in China shares traits with the 2009 Swine Flu and 1918 Pandemic Flu, and U.S. public health officials are monitoring the disease.
Fauci, a White House coronavirus task force member, explained before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee that the virus — known as “G4 EA H1N1,” — doesn’t appear to infect humans, however, it has shown “reassortment capabilities.”
Fauci says new swine flu found in China hasnt been shown to infect humans, but its demonstrating reassortment, which could cause spread. Not an "immediate threat," but "you always have the possibility that you might have another swine flu-type outbreak" https://t.co/vAOmsWGPI6 pic.twitter.com/FzrRnjVNz5

“In other words, when you get a brand new virus that turns out to be a pandemic virus it’s either due to mutations and/or the reassortment or exchanges of genes,” he stated. “And they’re seeing virus in swine, in pigs now, that have characteristics of the 2009 H1N1, of the original 1918, which many of our flu viruses have remnants of that in it, as well as segments from other hosts like swine.”
Fauci warned lawmakers of the “possibility that you might have another swine flu type outbreak as we had in 2009.”
“It’s something that still is in the stage of examination,” he added.
During another part of his testimony, Fauci expressed that he is “quite concerned” regarding the recent surge in Chinese coronavirus cases, blaming states for possibly reopening too soon and some Americans ignoring guidelines to stop the virus’ spread.
“We have got to get that message out that we are all in this together,” he said. “If we are going to contain this, we’ve got to contain it together.”
Federal and state officials have also blamed the surges on younger people failing to take precautions, like face masks and distancing in public.
Also appearing before the panel Tuesday was Robert Redfield, director of the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention; Stephen Hahn, commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration; and Brett Giroir, assistant secretary of the Health and Human Services Department.
Concerning the recent increases, Redfield said it’s “imperative” that Americans take personal responsibility in employing preventative measures to stop the virus’ spread.
“Specifically, I’m addressing the younger members of our society, the millennials and the ‘Generation Zs,'” he said.
“I ask those that are listening to spread the word,” he added, urging younger people to “embrace the universal use of face coverings.”

Donald Trumps Loss In November Could Cause America To Descend Into Chaos, Republican Operative Says
As Donald Trump continues to lag behind Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the polls, some extremist experts and Republican political veterans are concerned about the aftermath. As reported by The Independent, some believe that the president’s loss could spark violence across the country.
Jonathan Lockwood, a veteran Republican operative, pointed to recent pushback against Democratic governance and suggested that a similar backlash could happen if Trump loses in November.
“I think we should fear a violent uprising… All it takes is for Trump to say one line or post one tweet,” he said.
Lockwood suggested that the uprising could include the occupation of state capitols and even a hostage situation.
“I think you could see takeovers of every [state] capitol, since the president seems to enjoy watching that from DC, and the country can descend into a chaos that we’ve never seen. People are gravely underestimating how pervasive these conspiracies and the de-legitimizing of Democrats governing truly are.”
Daryl Johnson, a former Department of Homeland Security analyst who works to combat domestic terrorism and far-right extremist, claims that right-wing extremists are already discussing the coming election and their plans in the case of a potential loss. According to Johnson, there is an increase in sympathy for extremist beliefs among Republicans in state and local politics. Johnson believes purported surge could increase the possibility of violent confrontations, especially in regions like the Pacific Northwest, which he says sympathetic politicians reside.Chip Somodevilla / Getty Images
As reported by Yahoo News, a recent report from the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group found 38 percent of Democrats surveyed would support redoing the election if Biden lost due to his electoral vote. If Trump lost in November due to the electoral vote, 11 percent of Republicans supported a do-over election. According to political scientist Larry Diamond of Stanford University, co-author of the analysis, there are “multiple contexts” that could lead to the mobilization of Americans who reject the legitimacy of the coming election’s results.
Joe Walsh, who briefly ran for the Republican nomination in the 2020 primary, believes that the loss of the White House or Senate are two such contexts. He said the Republican Party is on its last legs and claims it will be “even more desperate” in the face of a November loss. According to Walsh, the GOP will use violence in an attempt to bring the government to a halt.
Author Seth Abramson previously claimed that Trump has a plan for remaining in office in the face of a November election loss. In particular, the Proof of Collusion author said the president’s purported plan will harness the courts and media apparatus to help him retain his grip on power.
