Dr. Jonathan Gubbay will present on a new influenza virus that has been discovered by the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion (OAHPP). It is the first Canadian confirmed finding of a patient with a coinfection of seasonal H3N2 and pH1N1 followed by reassortment. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case ever reported globally. The sample was submitted to OAHPP laboratories and testing identified co-infection and reassortment of the two viruses. These results were validated by National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg.
Dr. Natasha Crowcroft will be the discussant, commenting on the public health significance of this finding.
