    I would not like to be annoying but this map is from Russian National Influenza Centre (NIC), part of the WHO Global Influenza Surveillance Network:

      Re: Mongolia recorded "unknown" influenza virus

      Personally, I think you're right, IOH - I think it is seasonal H3N2 in Mongolia. I don't think a novel flu virus could get from the US to Mongolia without being detected lots of places in between (including more US cases), and I think there would have been another WHO alert (by BOTH countries) if this were yet another novel flu.

      What puzzles me is why these strange Russian articles keep coming - I'm pretty sure this one contradicts itself by saying that Russia doesn't know anything about the new flu, and then saying it confirmed 5 cases of it in Irkutsk.

        I agree.

        At this point, further details are essential in order to understand the situation.

        A ProMed enquiry could be useful. Can we send a request for information?

            Re: Mongolia recorded &quot;unknown&quot; influenza virus

            Re Alert's "I'm REALLY confused...." , me too.
            Machine translation is a wonderful thing - most of the time.

            By IOH's map H3 seems to rule the roost in the east, at least where there is data.
            It can only be a guess but I suspect Mongolia is suffering from a lot of seasonal H3N2 which happened to coincide with the WHO circulating the US's week 44 novel H3N2 report. I think the US probably forwarded a report to WHO in weeks 23, & 46 as well but someone in Russian saw the week 44 one, put 2 & 2 together and got 5 and a half. Once the media had made the connection between rapidly spreading Mongolian H3N2 and the US week 44 report it just fed off its own stories, in the absence of anything new.

            If you recall the lather built up around 225 mutations in Ukraine last year or the scary case fatality rates claimed in Mexico at the start of H1N1(2009) some strange stories just get picked up and run with, until there is better data to report. If it gets more widely reported someone who has actually seen the patient information and/or sequences may step up and make a statement but it has not reached a critical mass yet where WHO - or some other authoritative body - realises there is something that needs to be confirmed or denied.

              Re: Mongolia recorded &quot;unknown&quot; influenza virus

              Well, basically we don't know what is going on.

              New flu strains pop up all the time?

              IMHO it seems most likely to be a new seasonal H3N2 strain . The report said: ("no protection" this could be: "no protection from the current vaccine"?.

              The report also mentioned bird flu and swine flu. This could refer to many flu strains, which are circulating in birds and swine, and last but not least: humans..... Nothing new here? The current Brisbane/H3N2 strain could also qualify as a triple reassortant strain?

              Fortunately this "new" strain doesn't seem to be more virulent than an average flu strain. Well, if "average flu strains" exist .....

              A new strain is not automatically a more virulent strain?

              This new strain may spread or not spread. If it will spread, it may be a candidate for the next world wide flu vaccine? H3N2/Ulan Bator?

              The confusion may be caused by the simultaneous circulation of the current H3N2 (Brisbane) strain.

              In the end, it just could be that: Brisbane/H3N2.

              We'll wait and see.

                December 3, 2010,

                Russian doctors interested in finding in Mongolia novel influenza virus, which, according to some, like swine and avian influenza.

                "No panic. But we're interested in, because it is close to our borders "- said the head of Rospotrebnadzor, chief state sanitary doctor Gennady Onishchenko.

                "Our Mongolian colleagues say they have discovered the flu virus H3N2. Through the Foreign Ministry, we have requested access to clinical material, which is in Mongolia ", - said Onishchenko.

                According to him, the specialists of the Russian NGO "Vector" - the regional center for the study of influenza - are going to explore a new flu, which is found in Mongolia.

                "They will go to Mongolia, if we agree, and if there will be something to investigate. It is unclear what kind of flu. The clinic, he is small, unlike normal influenza. More research is needed "- said the head of Rospotrebnadzor.

                In Mongolia, we found a new, unexplored by experts virus, the symptoms similar to the so-called avian and swine influenza.

                "It was classified as H3N2. In Ulan Bator today registered 17 cases. It is also known that the main risk exposed young children "- delivered on Thursday channel" Stork-TV, citing the National Research Center for Infectious Diseases in Mongolia.

                "Now we do not know the specific methods of protection from the virus H3N2. We believe that the main thing - it's to protect themselves from cold. It is manifested through her new infection "- said the representative of the Mongolian Center, reports "Interfax"

                  I think it is very interesting that Russia is sending doctors to investigate.

                    This is apparently nowhere near Mongolia (the other side of Russia), increasing the likelihood this is seasonal H3N2 (or at least just a drifted seasonal H3N2) and not trH3N2. Confimed trH3N2 cases require WHO notification.

                    Note also that there is no mention in any of these articles of statements from Dr. Onischenko, who would likely be giving press releases if novel flu have been detected in Russia.

                      Re: Mongolia recorded &quot;unknown&quot; influenza virus - Confusion

                      It seems the Russian sources are mixing up several different things. The virus in Singapore and Australia is a drift variant of Pandemic H1N1, and is not H3N2 at all. If Singapore had detected fatal trH3N2 cases, we'd know. They are also confused as to the fact that H3N2 has been a seasonal strain for the past 30 years.

                      http://translate.googleusercontent.c...zz0Inrv-4weHbA

                      Recall that in October the media were writing about a new mutation of the influenza virus H1N1. A new type of influenza (H3N2) has spread in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. In these countries, people infected graft, and there are cases of death.

                      In this case, doctors had no information about whether a strain of itself is so dangerous, or some extraneous factors make people susceptible and vulnerable to the virus. Experts still do not make predictions about whether this strain is gaining force in the region.

                      In November, chief state sanitary doctor Gennady Onishchenko said that H3N2 does not threaten Russia. As the head of Rospotrebnadzor, H3N2 has always been a seasonal influenza strain, however, as H1N1. New - long forgotten past. Mutant virus is composed of three strains that had in 1998-1999 attempted to spread from pigs to humans. After the case of the virus circulating in pigs for about ten years. Now, it turns out, the attempt number two states Onishchenko.

                        The cases of H3N2 in Volograd are seasonal; this whole thread almost certainly is.

                            Seems that seasonal H3N2 is there, but most of the ARVI is due to adenovirus.

                            http://www.cherinfo.ru/news/35101

                            The first flu arrived in Vologda, Cherepovets yet no cases have been identified, said sanitary inspectors. Nevertheless, the incidence of [ARVI] in the city reached 3,900 cases. All in all, according to Rospotrebnadzor area for the last week in Vologda registered more than 10000 cases of [ARVI], including more than 70,000 - in children up to age 14. Epidporog week exceeded by 16,2&#37;, compared with the previous week the incidence increased by 3,7%. According to laboratory studies in three cases diagnosed influenza A/H3N2 / and 14 - adenovirus infection.

                              Perhaps this thread should now be moved out of the trH3N2 forum as it is clear from this WHO release that the H3N2 in Mongolia is seasonal, not swine.

                              Thank you for moving/renaming the thread.

                              In Mongolia, rates of ILI have continued to rise above the seasonal baseline since mid to late November 2010 and were associated with increasing detections of influenza A(H3N2) virus, suggesting that the local winter influenza epidemic is under way
