    Well yes, it's obviously different or else it wouldn't be novel, but it is still a strain of flu!

      "Flu" just like "Coronavirus" are classes of viruses.

      SARS-CoV-2 is a coronavirus, but it's not a strain of MERS which also is (or was) coronavirus.

      Any more questions, son?

                Yes, and I think he's the same professor whose doom-laden advice led to the needless slaughter of tens of millions of healthy animals during the last Foot & Mouth epidemic

                  It's worth looking back at some of the threads over the last 2 years see who provided correct information and who ridiculed anything that upset them.

                    Any sort of role where you have to advise on how to prevent a potential bad outcome that isn't 100% certain to happen either way is a very tough gig. Whatever you advise is going to annoy someone, get it "right" and prevent the bad outcome, and some people will think the measures taken were too harsh, get it "wrong" and allow the outcome, and everyone will be on your back.

                      Even if that is the case, so what? Laurel is a type of cherry but you wouldn't eat a big bowl of the berries.
