HI, Thank you for writing in. A novel disease is newly discovered and has never been observed before anywhere in the world. This could be due to mutation of the organism that is responsible for the disease. One example is the novel influenza A (H1N1) virus. This has been found to contain combination of genes from pig, bird and human influenza viruses, as never been seen before.
