Center for Disease Control and Prevention has feared that a recently identified flu strain from pigs possibly would spread more rapidly than it was being expected.
Dr. Joseph Bresee of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, “We do not expect an outbreak of the swine flu, adding that nearly 200 cases of the strain have already been identified. This is not a pandemic situation”.
CDC further added that they are expecting a rise in the number of cases. However, at the same time, they confirmed that effects of this strain as less in comparison to the previous strains in affecting the humans. Officials stated that two people were confirmed of the infection and were hospitalized. However, they have been discharged.
Despite all these facts, state agencies affirmed that they are already preparing themselves to tackle the situation in case it gets worse. Dr. Joseph Bresee, an epidemiologist in the CDC’s Influenza Division, stated that the case of infection of the flu virus has been majorly administered in case of children and young adults and the transmission of the infection might have occurred due to close or indirect exposure to swine. The infection might have spread during the time of state or county fairs.
