First Confirmed H3N2v Death - Ohio
Recombinomics Commentary 18:30
August 31, 2012

The 61-year-old female Madison County resident passed away earlier this week.

The individual had direct contact with swine at the Ross County fair before becoming ill.

The above comments from the Ohio Department of Health press release describe the first confirmed H3N2v fatality.  Details, including disease onset date and underlying conditions, were withheld.

The death highlights the dangers associated with a heavily biased data base focused on swine exposure.  In the August 31 CDC update, additional human to human transmission was acknowledged, but the number of cases and locations were withheld.

Similarly, the sequences from 34 cases have been released, but age and gender have been withheld.

This lack of transparency is hazardous to the world’s health and signals more efficient and deadly H3N2v transmission.
