"It's the earliest case I have seen in my nine years of following flu," Berringer said. "Other than the year we had H1N1 (2009), when flu cases never stopped."

Influenza A cases should be sub-typed. Two of the four trH3n2 cases have been reported as unsubtypable, but as reported above, many cases are not tested beyond an influenza A test.
Sub-typing of influenza A cases, especially in western Pennsylvania at this time of year, is critical for determining the spread of trH3N2.
The CDC emphasis on cases with swine links continues tio raise pandemic concerns.
