On a side note Dr. Niman, do you think most of the cases thus far of older people are cause of they are more susceptible to the disease or just cause of small sample size?

I think that older people don't handle new infections well, so they end up in the hospital where they are tested. Confirmed cases require testing, which has a VERY strong sample bias.


So people in the say 10 to 35 range should handle this just fine?

There are some deaths in the 25-35 age range, but it seems that adolescents do best (no fatalities and several discharges).

There was an interesting Letter in the latest Eurosurveillance on the higher death rates of both older men and women, men in particular.

it's also what you read everywhere, WHO,experts,Peiris,Xinhua,CIDRAP,....

i.e. in Shanghai, where it started. Other places just have a 1-2 weeks lag,
expect similar developments as in Shanghai, if they started
poultry culling and closure of wet markets

Susceptibility of old people to this is H3N2 like, is it not?

Does H7N9 have any H3N2 bits in it?

Q226I and M230I are in H3N2 and D225G is in H3N2v.
