The first case of the flu virus H3N2, also known as H3N2v, has been detected in Michigan, adding to the national spike in cases. The Michigan case is believed to have been transmitted by an Ingham County fair pig to a Washtenaw County child. The case was mild, and the child didn’t require hospitalization, said Angela Minicuci, spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Community Health. State lab tests will be sent to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control ‘and Prevention’ for final confirmation.
