I guess in the midst of a pandemic, the hard working folks @ the CDC took a holiday & skipped a statistics update this week. Updating a simple/vague spreadsheet is too much to ask. After all, the CDC said over 4000 U.S. Citizens have died this year of swine flu, but it is not reflected on their statistics page.
Lighten up kids, it's only a pandemic!
Well, if the U.S. Center for Disease Control can't produce a nationwide update, we can look to the BBC to shed some light on the topic.
Jump in number of global swine flu deaths
The global number of swine flu deaths has jumped by more than 1,000 in a week, latest figures from the World Health Organization (WHO) show.
At least 7,826 people are now known to have died following infection with the H1N1 virus since it first emerged in Mexico in April.
Europe saw an 85% increase in the week, with the total number of deaths rising from at least 350 to at least 650.

I think the CDC is doing a lousy job of reporting- tweaking & changing reporting formats without explanation. The government is doing an even worse job just getting the vaccinations to the front line people in the medical profession, instead giving them to Wall Street. It was reported, but nothing was done about it.
Will the H1N1 Flu pandemic be Obama's Katrina? I fear this may be the calm before the storm.
