And the CDC numbers still don’t have the 3 confirmed cases in Tennessee. And the WHO is still not qualifying it’s numbers with how big the back log of specimens they haven’t check yet is.

The "WHO and CDC confirmed case" metric is useless.

Click on my name and see some of my recent posts for more detail.

These folks are not ready for prime time.

Thanks for posting. That’s the real problem. The numbers aren’t the REAL numbers. Not only that but we’re going into summer shortly.

What I’ll be interested in is what happens come the next flu season this fall when everyone is back in school.

Washington State has 13 probable cases. I guess the docs test for Flu Type A, and that makes it a “probable”, and then off to the CDC for final confirmation. 90% of the probables that have been tested elsewhere are confirmed as Mexican Flu.

“Chicago Public Schools officials say students who come to school with a cough and fever starting Monday will be sent home and required to stay there for at least seven days.”

I am thinking there are many Chicago public school children trying to figure out how to fake a cough and fever.

As a kid, I would have run a few laps in a coat and several layers of clothing. Stashed the extra clothes, and immediately gone to the nurse complaining of a headache and faking a cough. 7 days of an excused absence is pretty tempting.
