trH3N2 Case In October
The above comments from the week 43 Maine flu report confirm a second trH3N2 case from Maine. As noted, this case (8M) also had multiple swine exposures. The above dates match the data for A/Maine/07/2011 (sample collected on October 24 and sequence submitted to GISAID on October 31) and the partial sequences match the earlier case from Maine, A/Maine/06/2011, as well as the recent case from Indiana, A/Indiana/11/2011.
Although, the sequence data leaves little doubt about the human transmission of this new contagion, the swine “exposure” narrative has been maintained.
Many more confirmed trH3N2 cases are expected, but withholding of those without swine exposure (shell game) may continue.
Detail on the Indiana case would be useful.
