MMWR: Morbidity & Mortality Weekly Report;5/1/2009, Vol. 58 Issue 16, p435
The article reports on cases of swine influenza A(H1N1) infections in California and Texas as of April 2009. Six cases were reported in San Diego County and Imperial County in California and Guadalupe County in Texas. No epidemiologic link between the Texas cases and the California cases have been identified. All of the patients have not been to Mexico within 7 days of the onset of illness. The article also suggests that since all patients had no recent exposure to pigs, the infection may have been acquired through contact with infected humans.
