I've been pouring over the isolates data from State websites since the beginning of the year. I have noticed that in some states, mostly on the east coast, a certain percentage of samples have been identified as pH1N1 and that it has been co-circulating with Flu B and H3N2 since early in the season. In these states, severe cases and deaths have been low. Even in North Carolina, where they had a number of deaths (an unusually high number of pediatric deaths), many of those deaths were attributed to Flu B and H3N2. Some deaths were attributed to pH1N1 and, based on the isolates data, it was the dominant strain; however, they have experienced the classic peak and flu season appears to be over there, just like in Mexico. I suspect that the strain circulating in NC is closer to A/California/7/2009.

Also, although Ontario had a bad flu season (with over 175 fatalities), when you look at the age range of fatalities, it has a seasonal flu signature - high on the ends and low in the middle. Then, if you look at the isolates data, Ontario has had very little pH1N1.

There have been some anomalies, though. We've been discussing the outbreak in the Pittsburg area (and Pennsylvania still hasn't posted Week 12 results). There have also been 20 fatalities each in LA and San Diego Counties. Furthermore, Texas has reported the highest number of pediatric deaths this season (13), which is nearly one-third the total they experienced in the 2009-10 season (47). From April 2009 through August 2010 they had, by far, the largest number of pediatric deaths per capita (54 deaths, or 2.1 deaths per million); only second behind California (57) in the actual number of pediatric deaths. So, based solely on the number of pediatric deaths and the fact that most (9 deaths) occurred recently (in Weeks 7 through 10), we should suspect that something is up in Texas.

Rumor has it that the new sub-clade frequently is influenza A positive but negative for H1 and H3 (as was seen in 2009) because the H1 has evolved away from the H1 probe. That might explain the high frequency of fatal cases that are not serotyped. Thus, deaths that are designated influenza A with no serotype may be signaling the new sub-clade. This really is a 2009 re-run (but significantly more lethal). Thus 2009/2010 may be 1917-like.

This was from an anonymous boots on the ground source. However, the index case was initially classified as "atypical pneumonia" and was never lab confirmed, even though he died and his partner, who also died, was H1N1 confirmed.

The Ministry of Health of Chihuahua reported that a fence was installed in the home health located about 50 streets to the discussion "of the house inhabited by people affected by the H1N1 influenza to prevent disease from spreading."

Meanwhile, the authorities of the three levels of government, most notably the Federal Police, reinforced the vaccination campaign against influenza A/H1N1 in the Juarez International Airport and the capital, after the confirmation of 21 cases from March 24 until yesterday. One agent said there are plans to implement 4 000 doses.
