Protect Yourself Against H3N2v

Twelve new cases of human infection with a swine influenza virus (H3N2v) have been reported, with 10 cases linked to pig exposure at a county fair in Ohio. No human-to-human spread of this flu has been reported yet, and no hospitalizations have been required. To help protect yourself from H3N2v, wash your hands, avoid eating near pigs, and stay away from animals that have runny noses, coughs, or “goop” in their eyes.

PositiveTip: Standard precautions of hygiene and healthy living will help you avoid this and other flu infections.
