Evidence of influenza A infection and risk of transmission between pigs and farmworkers

Today, we share a recent study by the Torremorell’s lab published in open access, in the Zoonoses and Public Health journal this past month. Led by Dr. Gustavo Lopez, this work focuses on the interface between the pigs and farmworkers when considering influenza A infection.
