The CDC Web Site had been doing daily updates of the Swine Flu, they then changed to 3 X a week, and have now taken it down a notch-- the site says it will post updates once a week, on Fridays.
I was checking the site because the State I live in, Oregon, had it's first Swine flu death this week.
13,217 have had Swine flu (confirmed cases)
28 have died, although the updated number won't show up at The Center for Disease Control's Website for a few more DAYS?
I still don't understand while people are dying from the disease we don't continue to post daily updates? This IS the information age, right????
I gave up blogging it because it was too hard to track updates and info....and the CDC site never really got it going there...really strange..
They will post new numbers tomorrow @ 11 EST.
Here the World Health Org just declared it a level 6 Pandemic, and the CDC is giving us the Heck-of-a-job treatment.
Seriously-- how freaking hard is it to update a damned spreadsheet?
I want to know sooner if there is a regional uptick in fatalities, thank you very much.
In the one weeks time, it took the CDC to update their numbers--
CONFIRMED CASES TOTAL:
LAST WEEK--- THIS WEEK---- AMOUNT INCREASED
13217-------17855--------4638 NEW CASES
US DEATHS, TOTAL (NOT PER WEEK TOTAL COUNT)
LAST WEEK--- THIS WEEK--- AMOUNT INCREASED
27 ----------45------18 ADDITIONAL DEATHS
People still need to be very aware & germ conscious. Wash & Sanitize those hands!
NYC sent out a caution that playgrounds could be a place where the disease is spread.
I am not impressed with the CDC"s "rearview mirror" approach-- updating old information, slowly.
