CDC: Unusual Influenza Virus Discovered in US Kids
from Medscape Medical News
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that a form of swine-origin influenza containing a genetic segment of the 2009 influenza A (H1N1) virus infected two children in Indiana and Pennsylvania this summer, a development that has prompted vigilance about possible ongoing transmission. "Non-human influenza virus infections rarely result in human-to-human transmission, but the implications of sustained ongoing transmission between humans is potentially severe," the CDC stated in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
