    Novel Influenza A Virus:

    No novel influenza A virus infections have been reported to CDC.

    A total of 310 infections with variant influenza viruses (306 H3N2v viruses, 3 H1N2v viruses, and one H1N1v virus) have been reported from 10 states since July 2012, with September 7, 2012 being the most recent date of illness onset in a confirmed case.

    The vast majority of cases have occurred after exposure to swine, though instances of likely human-to-human transmission have been identified.

    At this time no ongoing human-to-human transmission has been identified.

    More information about the H3N2v outbreaks can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/swineflu/h3n2v-outbreak.htm.
