Swine Influenza in the United StatesApril 26th, 2009 - 1:44 am ICT by admin
As of 6pm April 24 2009, 8 human cases of swine influenza A (H1N1) virus infection have been identified in San Diego County and Imperial County, California as well as in San Antonio, Texas. This strain of influenza virus is unique because it is a combination of swine, bird, and human influenza viruses. Infected individuals report flu-like symptoms of fever, aches and pains, sore throats, coughing and trouble breathing. Some people have also reported diarrhea and vomiting. These cases may be linked to an outbreak of influenza-like-illness in Mexico.
At this time there have been no severe illnesses or fatalities seen in the United States. However, CDC and state public and animal health authorities are still in the early stages of the investigations.
Further updates to the US investigation and any related travel recommendations will be posted on www.cdc.gov/travel when available.
