Swine flu redux: The CDC issues new warning about latest strain
- 29 human cases of a new swine flu diagnosed in the past year source
» Just be careful around pigs: 12 cases were confirmed this week, and 10 of them came from the same fair in Ohio. All of the cases from this year are much more mild than those from the 2009 pandemic, but this current strain contains a gene that might make the disease easier to spread from pigs to people. The CDC says to just wash your hands and “avoid taking food and drinks into livestock barns” if you attend a fair this year.
