A new flu virus that is occasionally jumping from pigs to people has done it again. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control is reporting that the new swine influenza H3N2 virus has infected four people who attended a county fair in Indiana. Indiana is one of six U.S. states in which human infections have been found since this variant H3N2 virus was first spotted at the end of last July.

The CDC says 12 pigs from the fair were tested for the virus and all were positive.
