Weekly Influenza Update

July 19, 2017

The 2017 city and county fair season in the Midwest is now underway. During recent summers, swine exhibitions at agricultural fairs and other direct or indirect exposure to swine have been associated with human infections caused by variant influenza A viruses that include A/H3N2v, A/H1N2v and A/H1N1v. So far this year, no human cases of variant influenza A have been detected in humans in the United States although swine flue has been detected in two Midwest states including Wisconsin.
