Two human cases of influenza variants normally found in pigs have been detected in Manitoba.

The cases — two different strains — were found in early April in two unrelated individuals in different communities in southern Manitoba, said Dr. Brent Roussin, chief provincial public health officer.

One is a case of human influenza A(H1N2)v and one is a case of human influenza A(H1N1)v.

They were detected after the two individuals independently sought testing after developing an influenza-like illness.
