CDC data on the most current case counts for variant flu virus infections in humans reported in the United States.


Swine influenza viruses can circulate among swine throughout the year, but most outbreaks occur during the late fall and winter months similar to outbreaks in humans.

While swine flu viruses do not usually infect humans, rare human infections have occurred. When this happens, these viruses are called “variant viruses.” Most commonly, human infections with variant viruses have occurred in people exposed to infected pigs (e.g., children near pigs at a fair or workers in the swine industry).
