Pig Cause of Swine Flu Spread to Humans

Both patients had contact with pigs and there is no indication of human to human spread at this time. One of the new cases was in Indiana and the other in Maine.

Of the 7 total cases of swine flu in the United States, one was suspected of being transferred by human to human.  The CDC said it is continuing to monitor the implications of the genetic change, which it said likely resulted during swine coinfection with swine H3N2 influenza and the 2009 H1N1 virus.

Overall the flu activity in the U.S. remain at low. If you are a healthcare worker you should remain vigilant in protecting yourself with washing your hands properly, cleaning all services and wearing protective medical scrubs.
