Indiana Opens H3N2v Call Center As Cases Explode
Recombinomics Commentary 14:30
August 3, 2012

A call center will open this afternoon from 1-4 p.m. to answer questions regarding influenza infection, the Indiana State Department of Health announced today. Beginning next week, the call center will be open from 8:15 a.m.-4:45 p.m., Monday through Friday. The call center telephone number is (877) 826-0011.

The above comments are from an Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) press release, which follows a release confirming an H3N2v case in Jackson County.  However, there have been symptomatic cases in Jackson County for the past 6 weeks, but initial swabs were collected 1 week ago per the alert following confirmation of H3N2v in cases linked to the LaPorte County fair (where 12/12 swine were also H3N2v confirmed).

Symptomatic cases have been noted at the Monroe County and Washington County fairs and media reports cite influenza A positive samples which are forwarded to ISDH.  In addition 10 cases from the Butler County Fair in southwestern Ohio (Hamilton) are influenza A positive and thus far 9 have been H3N2v confirmed.  The Ohio cases match the Indiana cases, which also match West Virginia sequences from a Mineral County daycare center where confirmed cases had no swine contact or exposure.  Moreover 23/70 contacts with the index case were symptomatic.

ISDH has acknowledged many samples from multiple counties, and more H3N2v confirmations by the CDC are expected.
