During week 15 (April 11-17, 2010), influenza activity decreased in the U.S.

* 37 (2.1%) specimens tested by U.S. World Health Organization (WHO) and National Respiratory and Enteric Virus Surveillance System (NREVSS) collaborating laboratories and reported to CDC/Influenza Division were positive for influenza.
* All 20 subtyped influenza A viruses were 2009 influenza A (H1N1).
* The proportion of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza (P&I) was at the epidemic threshold.
* No influenza-associated pediatric deaths were reported.
* The proportion of outpatient visits for influenza-like illness (ILI) was 1.1%, which is below the national baseline of 2.3%. All 10 regions reported ILI below region-specific baseline levels.
* No states reported widespread or regional influenza activity. Four states reported local influenza activity. The District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and 31 states reported sporadic influenza activity. Fourteen states reported no influenza activity, and the U.S. Virgin Islands and one state did not report.

No seasonal A viruses were detected.

Two B viruses were reported.

No change in the number of Tamiflu resistant viruses.

P&I at epidemic threshold, but only four states with local activity. None with widespread or regional. There seems to be an inconsistancy here.

Low reactors rose for 5 to 6 (all five earlier "low reactors" had a change at position 159, which appears to set the limit for detection by the CDC)

In week 14 report, 1701 pH1N1's had been tested for low reactor status and there were 5

In week 15 only 23 more were tested (1724 total), but another was found to bring total to 6. Thus, even though there is virtually no testing, the low reactors continue to rise.

Missed the increase in low reactors.

That's what the CDC tried to do by only testing 23. They did NOT succeed.

Notice that they are using the week 14 map in the week 15 report. The week 15 map has ZERO states with widespread or regional activity, yet P&I levels spiked to epidemic threshhold level.

What we have here... is a complete media failure. THIS is what happens when the non-demic mind set meets up with Pandemic H1N1 in late Spring.

When was the last time the media said the word "Pandemic"?

It's like Last year's hot fashion item, nobody wants to talk about it anymore. It's old news.

In today's world of breaking news, this Pandemic is History.

NOBODY is thinking "Flu" in late April... going into May.

Yeah, they aren't thinking flu, EVEN in spite of the fact that this is a Pandemic year. (As far as the Media is concerned... we've just had some flu "epidemics" in our country.) Nobody who is ANYBODY is calling anything "flu". And THAT is the new fashion trend for this Summer, on into Fall. :good:

We are RIGHT SMACK in the middle of some sand sticking our heads in deep, and saying we don't see anything.

If it's NOT on T.V. It's NOT real.

Is it? :blink:
