The World Health Organization has sent a warning to Georgia about a swine flu mutation.
However, the Georgian National Center for Disease Control said that the country faces no danger as of yet, and the warning was only sent to specialists via private channels.
The warning indicates that the H3N2 virus has been found in two people. Experts believe that that the H3N2 is a mutation of the swine flu and contains three circulating viruses.
The first case of the new influenza was detected in a 46-year-old man in Pennsylvania.
The swine flu killed 27 people in Georgia last year.
