UPDATE ON CANINE INFLUENZA IN MARYLAND
Canine Influenza was reported in Montgomery County, Maryland, August 21, 2013, with an initial 6 cases reported and 2 fatalities. As of one week later, up to 20 total cases have been reported in the county. The virus subtype is likely to be H3N8 as subtypes detected previously in the U.S. have been H3N8; however, there is a H3N2 Canine Influenza of avian origin circulating in China and Korea currently, and further subtype testing is needed to determine the subtype of these Maryland cases. Sub typing of the current virus is still pending and will take up to 2 to 3 weeks, based on early reports from Cornell Diagnostic Laboratory and Iowa State University conducting viral isolation on samples.
