  • Switzerland reports swine influenza A(H1N1)v virus case in farm worker

    A 48-year-old Swiss male farm worker tested positive for swine influenza A(H1N1)v virus, the World Health Organization (WHO) reports. On Dec. 20, 2017, he presented with mild acute respiratory symptoms 8 days before a nasal swab was collected. The virus isolated from this human case was partially sequenced and was closely related to the European avian-like swine influenza A(H1N1) viruses circulating in swine in Europe.
    Samples from the swine at the farm where the case worked also tested positive for influenza A viruses, and are currently under characterization. No additional human cases related to this event were reported.
