The World Health Organization published the following in a Friday Disease outbreak news:
On 20 March 2018, the National International Health Regulations focal point for the Netherlands notified WHO about a human infected with a new reassortant A(H1N2) of seasonal influenza viruses that was detected in the routine sentinel influenza surveillance for influenza-like illness and other acute respiratory infections in the Netherlands.
The patient is a child aged less than two years old, who had onset of symptoms in early March 2018. He was seen by a general practitioner, but did not require hospitalization and has fully recovered.
The general practitioner who attended to this case participates in the sentinel influenza surveillance network. With permission from the parent accompanying the child, nose and throat swabs were collected for virus detection. On 18 March, the Dutch National Influenza Centre (NIC), which is a collaboration of the Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam and the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) in Bilthoven, reported that the patient was confirmed to be infected by an A(H1N2) influenza virus by real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Sanger sequencing of the haemagglutinin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA) genes, and full genome sequencing revealed that the virus is a reassortant A(H1N2) of seasonal influenza viruses, and is made up of genes from currently circulating seasonal influenza virus subtypes A(H1N1)pdm09 (the haemagglutinin [HA] and the nonstructural [NS] protein genes) and A(H3N2) (the rest of the genes).

Hope this H1N2 inst deadly like avian flu
A Muslim 5 times a day doing ablution in icy water. I suffer from diabetes insipidus from 3 to 5 liters of water a day. Eating and drinking is healthy. Mom is a pensioner, a cook by profession. I do not work as a disabled 2 groups since childhood
(not working). I sleep 9 hours
Proof of immunity. March 12 after lunch, the temperature is 39.5 degrees on March 15 after lunch, the temperature is 36.6 degrees. I was ill with flu for 3 days but I was not treated. These 3 days I spent on my feet. If you do not believe, ask your mother. There were 3 simtoma high fever, a headache, muscles ached. The usual seasonal flu in both children and adults lasts about 5-10 days. I did a urine protein analysis negatively and 4 years ago was a unit. And the kidneys are not restored. Tachycardia made an analysis of the uzi-heart all right.
I’m alive because of my very strong immunity. I am ill with olivopontocebribular degeneration with the otrophy of the cerebellum. The threshold of life is from 10 to 20 years and I live with this disease for 25 years. The disease continues to worsen, but thanks to my immunity this process is slowed down.
On the advice of a local immunologist made 2 immunograms. Indicators exceeded.
The present invention relates to immunology and biotechnology. A method for mass production of an immunoglobulin Fc fragment free from an initial methionine residue is proposed using a recombinant expression vector without a signal sequence in E. coli cells. Before carrying out this person is vaccinated against the corresponding strain of influenza.
More than 5 years did not get sick with the flu
