RED WING, Minn. (FOX 47) -- The Minnesota Department of Health reports three people are believed to have developed a strain of influenza after visiting the swine barn at the Minnesota State Fair. But it's not the same strain that prompted increased surveillance earlier this summer.
According to the Red Wing Republican Eagle, one of the three new cases include a Goodhue County woman.
The three new cases involve a strain of H1N2v, which is different from the H3N2v strain that prompted concern. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there have been 289 cases of the H3N2v strain nationwide since the beginning of the year. To date, the Minnesota Department of Health reports three confirmed cases of H3N2v in the state.
