This is the prime time for county fairs – including pigs which may or may not be carrying Swine Flu.
WebMD says the “case count in the ongoing outbreak of new swine flu has jumped from 12 cases last week to at least 145 cases, the CDC announced today. Even while the CDC was making the announcement, Indiana health officials reported seven new cases. That brings the total to 152 cases — and counting.”

“Dubbed H3N2 variant or H3N2v, the virus causing the outbreak is a swine flu bug that more easily infects humans than the swine flu viruses previously circulating in pigs. All cases this year are in people who had direct contact with live pigs. You cannot get the virus from eating pork.”
