Kids contract new swine flu



A new strain of swine flu has shown up in two children in Pennsylvania and Indiana who had direct or indirect contact with pigs. The virus includes a gene from the 2009 pandemic strain that might let it spread more easily than pig viruses normally do.

So far, there’s no sign that the virus has spread beyond the two children, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. (AP)
