    TNN | Aug 24, 2014, 10.52 AM IST

    VADODARA: A suspected case of swine flu was admitted to the Sir Sayajirao General Hospital (SSGH) on Saturday evening. Sufiyabanu Pathan (15) was suffering from severe lung infection and critical breathlessness.
    The hospital had received the last suspected swine flu case in May. The last patient to be tested positive for the viral infection was in April. According to experts, the H1N1 strand of the virus has now mutated to H2N1 even as the symptoms and treatment remain the same.

    I have just checked GISAID & GenBank and neither have any human H2N1 sequences, also an H2N1 search on the WHO site gets no hits. It may just be a reporting error by a non specialist but it is difficult to see what comment by 'an expert' could have been morphed into a reassortment event.
