Case At Ohio State Fair
Clark County Combined Health District Commissioner Charlie Patterson said the local individual was tested for the virus after exhibiting symptoms but was not hospitalized.
“This person’s family is being watched, and if they have any symptoms they will be tested,” Patterson said.
The above comments describe the first H3N2v confirmed case at the Ohio State Fair in Columbus, which was initially announce in a press release by the Ohio Department of Health, which also cited 4 additional cases linked to the Butler County Fair in Hamilton, which was in addition to the 10 cases confirmed earlier.
The 15 confirmed cases in Ohio top the 11 cases announced by the Indiana State Department of Health in a press release announced Friday. However, Ken Severson has indicated another release is slated for today, and a CIDRAP report yesterday cited 3 more confirmed cases, which may included two confirmed cases from the Monroe County Fair recently announced.
However, in addition to the two confirmed cases from the Monroe County Fair, additional swabs from other cases have been sent to ISDH, as have swabs from influenza A positive cases from the Washington County Fair, where 8 of 8 swine have been H3N2v confirmed.
Moreover, there have already been 4 or 5 confirmed cases from the Jackson County Fair, but since there have been symptomatic cases in Jackson County for the past 6 weeks, the number of cases may be markedly higher than the previously reported confirmed cases.
