A(H1N1)pdm09 Flu

Post by rick1 on Thu Dec 27, 2018 4:33 pm

Looks like this year the flu is hitting pretty hard so far, there are 2 types, the A(H1N1)pdm09 and the A(H3N2), which is hitting the southern states. A double whammy:

Fox news said that the CDC warns of this flu season will be the worst in decades.

Here's the latest update from the CDC, ending week 51 of 2018:

Not sure why Fox news and CDC would report that "this season will be the worst in decades." There is no evidence of that. The initial wave of flu cases is already on the wane, and even though another one is expected, statistically it doesn't look as bad as several other years in recent history.

One thing we need to be on guard against is hyperbole. The CDC has been thoroughly corrupted by political and commercial interests, and has been busy in the past few years pushing Leftist agenda and commercial propaganda. Add that to the fact that FoxNews, like any other network, gets more ad revenue when the news is eventful and less when it is boring, and the result is that the headlines don't always reflect reality, even with Fox.

The internal statistics of the CDC are usually fairly accurate, however, if you are willing to look a little deeper into their site. The links above, provided by "rick1" are pretty accurate, and digging a little deeper by looking at the reports they link to gives some good information.

The flu season is not as bad as last year (yet), but it's wide spread in 31 states now:
