DemFromCT, in the Health Care Friday feature on DailyKos.com, calls our attention to an H1N1 swine flu-human reassortment that the CDC is monitoring.

The post includes links to a CDC page that is updated daily with the number of cases, a Washington Post story and more about it from Science.

According to The Washington Post:

More than 50 scientists and epidemiologists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta are studying the strain, and dozens of public health investigators in Southern California are looking for more cases among the those who had contact with the children.

Note: DemFromCt features health care on the DailyKos blog every Tuesday and Friday – it’s worth checking out.
