2013 Grant Co Indiana H3N2v Matches 2012 Cases & Swine
June 28, 2013
The CDC has release complete or nearly complete sequences for all 8 gene segments from one of the H3N2v infected attendees of the Indiana Grant County Fair, A/Indiana/04/2013 (see map). The CDC is to be commended for the rapid release of these sequences. As suggested by the 99% similarity sated in the week 25 FluView, all 8 gene segments matched the lineages dominant in the 2012 H3N2v cases, including an N2 matching the sequences from the 2011 cases linked to a West Virginia day care center.
