Two cases of a new strain of swine-flu related infection have been reported in young children, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Friday. The infections, identified in late August, involved an Indiana boy and girl from Pennsylvania, both under age 5. The particular strain the children contracted hasn't been seen before, said Tom Skinner, CDC spokesman. While the CDC typically sees a few cases a year of H3N2 (an influenza A virus), usually as result of contact with swine, "what's new is that it has picked up a gene from the H1N1 pandemic strain," said Skinner.
