H1N1 Influenza A - Mexican Swine Flu: 12 July Brief Update

As A(H1N1) Swine flu continues to spread, the world waits to see what is going to happen in the Fall when flu season returns to the northern hemisphere. A current issue at the front of most flu watcher's minds is the impending emergence of Tamiflu-resistant strains of the disease, which will undoubtedly lead to more serious cases and many more deaths.

Laboratory confirmed cases now stand at 114,249, slightly more than a 61% rise over the ending count of 70,873 exactly two weeks ago. Here's a breakdown of the up-to-date statistics:

12 July - 114,249 cases - 611-617 fatalities
5 July - ? - ?
28 June - 70,873 cases - 344 fatalities
21 June - 51,360 cases - 253 fatalities

7 June - 24,973 cases - 149 fatalities
31 May - 17,822 cases - 119 fatalities

So, when your comment doesn't appear immediately, *DO NOT* throw a hissy-fit and assume I'm refusing negative comments (yes, it really happened). I approve pretty much everything that isn't obvious SPAM, negative or not, and I promise you that will include your hissy-fit comments, accusing me of a grand conspiracy to squash dissenting ideas (also really happened). The result, of course, being that you will look like a fool, and the rest of us will laugh heartily at your stupidity.
