Linked to Minnesota State Fair
Both children visited the swine barn at the Minnesota State Fair with their families on Sept. 2, and became ill on Sept. 5.
The above comments from the Minnesota Department of Health advisory describe two likely H3N2v cases. Both visited the Minnesota State Fair on the same day and developed symptoms three days later, signaling efficient transmission.
The advisory also cites detection of H3N2v in a pig from the fair. Release of sequences from the cases and swine would be useful.
In Laporte County in Indiana H3N2v was reported for 12 of 12 swine samples. However, the swine sequence did not match the first four confirmed human cases, supporting human to swine transmission.
