I dont know if this story was already posted here before but what I want to know is that "what if this virus comes into contact with the A(H1N1)"? Is there a possibility that the A(H1N1) would mutate to a very different and/or far more dangerous virus?

Hope someone can enlighten me with this one. Peace!

Virus is a whole family of organisms. There are a lot of different types of viruses. So to worry that a certain extremely lethal virus would form a supervirus by merging with another totally different highly contageous virus is like worrying that polar bear would "merge" with rat and create a superhunter living in a sewers.

I posted about this originally in October last year:

It had a high death rate but luckily did not spread far.

On a related note, Ebola may potentially have a vaccine:
