US - The Michigan Departments of Health and Human Services and Agriculture and Rural Development have announced that there have been eight human cases of influenza A variant viruses reported in Michigan.

All tested positive for influenza A H3N2 variant (H3N2v) and one person has been hospitalised and since released.

All of the confirmed cases had exposure to swine at county fairs in Muskegon, Cass, and Ingham counties during July and August where sick pigs had also been identified.

MDHHS and MDARD are working closely with local health departments, the healthcare community, and fairs to protect swine exhibitors and the public and identify any additional cases.
