From Fluview a division of the CDC comes their weekly flu reporting for the period defined below.

Synopsis:
During week 47 (November 18-24, 2012), influenza activity increased in the U.S.

Novel Influenza A Virus:One infection with an influenza A (H3N2) variant virus (H3N2v) was reported to CDC during week 47 from Iowa. While no contact with swine or other livestock in the week preceding illness was reported, investigation into potential additional sources of infection is ongoing. No further cases have been identified in contacts of the case patient. This is the first H3N2v infection reported since September 28, 2012.

A total of 311 infections with variant influenza viruses (307 H3N2v viruses, 3 H1N2v viruses, and 1 H1N1v virus) have been reported from 11 states from July 2012 through November 28, 2012. More information about H3N2v infections can be found at [link to www.cdc.gov] The vast majority of variant virus infections have occurred after exposure to swine, though instances of likely human-to-human transmission have been identified. No ongoing human-to-human transmission has been identified. Additional information about influenza in swine, variant influenza infection in humans, and precautionary measures recommended during interactions with swine can be found at [link to www.cdc.gov]



Antigenic Characterization:
CDC has antigenically characterized 140 influenza viruses [Two 2009 H1N1 viruses, 90 influenza A (H3N2) viruses, and 48 influenza B viruses] collected by U.S. laboratories since October 1, 2012.

2009 H1N1 [2]:

•Both 2009 H1N1 viruses tested were characterized as A/California/7/2009-like, the influenza A (H1N1) component of the 2012-2013 influenza vaccine for the Northern Hemisphere.
Influenza A (H3N2) [90]:

•All 90 H3N2 influenza viruses tested so far have been characterized as A/Victoria/361/2011-like, the influenza A (H3N2) component of the 2012-2013 Northern Hemisphere influenza vaccine.
Influenza B (B/Yamagata/16/88 and B/Victoria/02/87 lineages) [48]:

•Yamagata Lineage [34]: Thirty-four (70.8%) of the 48 influenza B viruses tested so far this season have been characterized as B/Wisconsin/1/2010-like, the influenza B component of the 2012-2013 Northern Hemisphere influenza vaccine.

•Victoria Lineage [14]: Fourteen (29.2%) of 48 influenza B viruses tested have been from the B/Victoria lineage of viruses
