Post subject:  Is CDC Playing a Shell Game With trH3N2 Unsubtypables?

I have started this thread to discuss the bizarre reporting of trH3N2 in the weekly CDC FluViews. The latest example is the absence of the Maine case, A/Maine/06/2011, from the subtype figure in the week 41 report, raising concerns that the CDC is playing a shell game to delay reports of trH3N2 cases with no swine "exposure".

Subtyping figure for the summer of 2011 (weeks 21-40) when four trH3N2 cases (with H1N1pdm M gene) were reported. The figure has removed the "unable to subtype" category and has eliminated two of the unsubtypables which were in weeks 33 and 34 in prior figures overlapping this time frame

Maine trH3N2 Unsubtypable Not Reported In CDC FluView
Recombinomics Commentary 21:00
October 26, 2011

HETL detected a case of influenza A virus that was inconclusive during subtyping.

Testing performed at Maine’s Health and Environmental Testing Laboratory on October 14, 2011 indicated a likely swine origin influenza A (H3N2) virus and this result was confirmed at CDC on October 16, 2011.


The above comments are from the week 41 report from the Maine Centers for Disease Control followed by the week 41 FluView from the CDC..................
