Information for ARI or ILI (Influenza-like illness) taken from Wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acute_resp ... _infection
"...Technically, any clinical diagnosis of influenza is a diagnosis of ILI, not of influenza. This distinction usually is of no great concern because, regardless of cause, most cases of ILI are mild and self-limiting. Furthermore, except perhaps during the peak of a major outbreak of influenza, most cases of ILI are not due to influenza. ILI is very common: in the United States each adult and child can average 1–3 and 3–6 episodes per year of ILI. ..."
"...nfluenza-like illness is a nonspecific respiratory illness characterized by fever, fatigue, cough, and other symptoms that stop within a few days. Most cases of ILI are caused not by influenza but by other viruses (e.g., rhinoviruses and respiratory syncytial virus, adenoviruses, and parainfluenza viruses)...""During the 2009 swine flu outbreak many thousands of cases of ILI were reported in the media as suspected swine flu. Most were false alarms."
This is in all way very different from
"Reported Location: L\'viv, Ukraine
Confirmed/Probable Cases: 78125
Fatal Cases: 23
This is an aggregated report based on 6 reports near the same location."
