When an influenza virus that normally circulates in swine (although not people) is detected inside a person, it’s known as a “variant influenza virus.” For instance, if your swine origin influenza A H3N2 virus is detected inside a person, that virus is going to be known as an “H3N2 variant” virus or “H3N2v” virus.
