Posted on 08/04/2012 2:13:11 PM PDT by Olog-hai
It's the season for state and county fairs, and health officials are reminding fairgoers to be careful around pigs because of a new flu spreading from the animals to people.
Officials say 29 human cases of the new strain of swine flu have been confirmed in the U.S. in the last year, most of them children.
Ten of the 12 cases confirmed this week were linked to the Butler County Fair in southwest Ohio, which ended last weekend.
Fairgoers are advised to wash their hands and avoid taking food and drinks into livestock barns. Pregnant women, young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems should be particularly careful.

dyslexics, like smart people other know to want...
aware much too to the believe liberal crap bull more!
SPO—crisis let never a waste go.
Aren’t we all supposed to skip the fair this year and donate the savings to 0bama’s relection anyway?
I think they are being unfair.
It’s worse if you’re an agnostic, dyslexic insomniac...you stay awake all night wondering if there really is a doG.
Oops, include “to” to the last sentence-not being dyslexic myself you may put it where you will...oh and since this is Free Republic I wonder how many will be offended;)
You right that got.
Yawn. I remember the MSM and government led SWINE FLU panic of 1976. A few old people died standing in line to get the shot, only ONE person caught it I believe. No one died from it.
2009 was a little different but still no massive die off.
Are there any documented cases of from pig to human swine flu transference that occurred at a state fair? If so, under what conditions?
Sorry, but this sounds as if someone, looking for job security, took a six or seven sigma event (on the standard bell curve events with well less than a one per cent probability) and made a report/story out of it.
Are you aware of how many laws and regulations have been developed and placed on the books to prevent things that have a historical probability of less than one per cent chance of occurring? Yes, I agree if you are that one per cent; but the rest of us?
