21 Jul 2020 Germany

The case recovered and no further cases were detected among contacts. On 1 July, genetic sequencing characterized this virus as an Eurasian avian-like swine A(H1N1) virus. Current evidence suggests that these viruses have not acquired the ability of sustained transmission among humans.
