02.11.2016New influenza outbreak among agricultural fair visitors

The Ohio Department of Health Laboratory and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Laboratory report 18 cases of influenza A infections in humans that visited exhibits at agricultural fairs. The viruses tested positive for the variant H3N2v. Due to the risk of infection, people at high risk for influenza-associated complications should not be entering swine barns and fairs with live stock. To minimize transmission of viruses from infected pigs to visitors of agricultural fairs, the organizers should shorten the time swine are on the grounds, isolate ill pigs and keep a veterinarian at hand. Including this report, there have been 372 H3N2v virus infections across the United States since 2005. Source: CDC[more]
