Summary

  • When people are infected with influenza A viruses that are known to be genetically similar to viruses circulating in swine, these viruses are called “variant viruses” and denoted with a letter “v”.
  • The table below reflects the most current case counts for variant virus infections reported in the United States since 2005.
  • Most infections with variant viruses have occurred in children (persons 18 or younger) and most cases have reported direct or indirect exposure to swine prior to onset of illness.
  • Limited transmission from close contact with an infected person has been observed in some investigations of human infections with variant viruses, but sustained human-to-human transmission has not been documented.
