H1NA FLU: NO MAJOR CHANGE, SLOW BUT STEADY GROWTH

This will be my last email on this for a while.  You can see the global spread below, and I expect this whole process to motor along on both the national and world-wide level.  There is still no case analysis being released, which is really overdue. (Totals for cases/deaths:  403/1 US, 1124/26 world-wide)

 

Note that the global map has some limitations.  There are countries that are not equipped to test and monitor cases…and unfortunately there are countries who will purposely not report, or report incompletely.  We saw this before with avian flu, where China delayed release of their data for political reasons (hence the sign below in the graphic:  “As reported by national health authorities.”).

 

I’ll come back on the wire if there are new developments
