Iceland: H1N1 outbreak in pigs possibly from staff

//29 Oct 2009

The ag authorities of Iceland reported ten cases of pandemic influenza H1N1 on a farm of 4500 pigs.

Clinical signs started with 10 sows off feed, temperature >40°C, some were coughing and two aborted.

Two workers had had flu-like symptoms for a few days prior to the clinical signs in the pigs, which makes it possible that the H1N1 influenza was transmitted from them to the pigs.
