ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota has recorded its first confirmed case and a second probable case of a new flu strain that people can catch from pigs, the Department of Health said Monday.

The cases are in siblings who probably were exposed when their family visited a live animal market in Dakota County on Aug. 10. Neither child required hospitalization and both are recovering, the department said in a news release.
