Novel Influenza A Virus

No additional human infections with novel influenza A viruses were reported to CDC during week 36.

To date, a total of 20 variant virus infections have been reported in the United States during 2017.

Eighteen of these were H3N2v viruses (Texas [1], North Dakota [1], Pennsylvania [1], and Ohio [15]) and two were H1N2v viruses (Ohio [2]).

Two of the 20 infected persons were hospitalized as a result of their illness.

No deaths have occurred.

All variant virus infections have been associated with swine exposure in fair settings and no human-to-human transmission has been identified.

Early identification and investigation of human infections with novel influenza A viruses are critical to ensure timely risk assessment and so that appropriate public health measures can be taken.
