Hmm. That’s certainly interesting. The first place it was diagnosed was in the US near San Diego, where (IIRC) it was thought to be an Asian swine flu until more thoroughly analyzed. I think it was first identified by the Navy’s health service, which monitors things like this very closely. Someone posted an interesting article a couple of days ago on this.
Interesting that there’s so much Northern Midwest presence in it. I didn’t even realize it was possible to break it down to that level.
One of us Minnesotans probably brought it down there during our spring break vacation.
We have lots of birds and pigs. Height of flu season too.
Minnesotans just don’t die from it.
