New infections1: Since the previous update on 8 May 2020, two new human infections with avian influenza A(H9N2) viruses, one human infection with an influenza A(H1N1) variant virus and one human infection with an influenza A(H1N2) variant virus were reported.2 Risk assessment: The overall public health risk from currently known influenza viruses at the human-animal interface has not changed, and the likelihood of sustained human-to-human transmission of these viruses remains low. Human infections with viruses of animal origin are expected at the human-animal interface wherever these viruses circulate in animals.
