USA reported one new case of human infection with swine influenza virus H1N2v


Novel Influenza A Virus:

One human infection with a novel influenza A virus was reported by the state of Iowa. The person was infected with an influenza A (H1N2) variant (H1N2v) virus.

The patient was not hospitalized, and has fully recovered from their illness.

No human-to-human transmission has been identified and the case reported close contact with swine in the week prior to illness onset.

Early identification and investigation of human infections with novel influenza A viruses are critical so that the risk of infection can be more fully appreciated and appropriate public health measures can be taken.
