Default 2 cases of H3N2 combined with H1N1

I'm going to try to find more on this.

"Two children infected with new swine flu strain"


Both kids had direct contact with swine prior to infection and there is no evidence of human to human transmission. BUT what caught my eye is this:

"The particular strain the children contracted hasn't been seen before, said Tom Skinner, CDC spokesman. While the CDC typically sees a few cases a year of H3N2 (an influenza A virus), usually as result of contact with swine, "what's new is that it has picked up a gene from the H1N1 pandemic strain," said Skinner."
