End Of Day Summary for Monday, September 28, 2009 ( Over the past 7 days, 309 swine flu deaths were reported worldwide, an average of 44.1 deaths per day. This figure represents a decline of 30% over the number of deaths reported one week ago. However, it should be noted that this steep decline came from the three most affected nations of this week and last: Brazil, India, and the United States. Excluding those top three from the death counts, the rest of the world experienced a very modest gain of 2% over the number of confirmed deaths during the week prior.

As mentioned earlier, Brazil, once again, tops the chart for the 8th week in a row, adding 84 deaths to their count. India had the next highest number of deaths, adding 46 new ones, or an increase of 18%. In third place, yet again, is the United States, with 37 new deaths, in the following areas: CA (7), FL (5), AZ (3), LA (3), PA (3), CO (2), IA (2), KS (2), AL (1), CT (1), GA (1), IL (1), MD (1), MS (1), NM (1), OH (1), OK (1), and Puerto Rico (1).

Argentina confirmed 24 more deaths, which marks the first we have heard from their health ministry in several weeks. The figures in Colombia continue to rise, with 17 new deaths, representing an increase of 26%. South Africa also reported an increase of 26%, adding 12 more fatalities. Peru also confirmed 12 more dead, while Venezuela confirmed 11 more. Elsewhere, the following nations also had confirmed H1N1 fatalities: Thailand (7), Australia (6), Mexico (6), Ecuador (5), Bolivia (5), Vietnam (5), Hong Kong (5), Japan (4), United Kingdom (3), Oman (3), Spain (3), South Korea (2), Chile (2), France (1), Italy (1), Panama (1), Qatar (1), Hungary (1), Suriname (1), Canada (1), Honduras (1).

Germany, after having more than 20,000 confirmed H1N1 cases, finally suffered their first fatality. Portugal also recorded their first and second swine flu deaths. Additionally, Cambodia had their first swine flu death.

Note: Death Rate figures are based on confirmed case counts. It is estimated that there are more H1N1 cases than have been officially confirmed, therefore actual death rate may be lower. Additionally, countries that test more samples may appear to have lower death rates than countries that test fewer samples.

A national health advocacy group says more than 60,000 people in Illinois would be hospitalized in a swine flu outbreak if the virus behaves like one that caused a global epidemic in 1968. Trust for America's Health released its report Thursday. The group warns 15 states could run out of empty hospital beds during the peak of a swine flu outbreak. Illinois would use 73 percent of its hospital beds in the report's projections. The report assumes swine flu will be like the Hong Kong flu in 1968. That was the mildest global epidemic in the 20th century. A grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation supported the report. Since April, more than 400 Illinois residents have been hospitalized with swine flu. There have been 19 deaths from the virus in the state.

Receipt of an A/NJ/1976/H1N1 "swine flu" vaccine in 1976, unlike receipt of influenza vaccines used in subsequent years, was strongly associated with the development of the neurologic disorder Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). RESULTS: We found that, although C. jejuni was not detected in 1976 swine flu vaccines, these vaccines induced anti-GM(1) antibodies in mice, as did vaccines from 1991-1992 and 2004-2005. Preliminary studies suggest that the influenza HA induces anti-GM(1) antibodies. CONCLUSIONS: Influenza vaccines contain structures that can induce anti-GM(1) antibodies after inoculation into mice. nti-ganglioside antibodies (e.g., anti-GM(1)) are associated with the development of GBS.

People fretting about different death rates in different countries: Yes, there might be more genetic susceptibility in some races more than others, but the main difference is going to be how much the country in question tests for swine flu. Germany is quite unique in that it has continued to comprehensively test for the flu, whereas other countries gave up official testing a long time ago. The government estimates here in the UK for example are that over 500,000 have had swine flu, but the official figure is 13,000!

I'm just wondering how come Germany has 19703 reported cases and zero deaths rate,almost the same with Portugal too with only one death case. Come to think about it the regular flu in some bad cases can cause death and when I look at Germany's and Portugal's charts I see nothing but a regular flu. What does these two countries has that others don't? This may sound silly but sometimes I think this whole swine flu thing is some sort of a sick global experiment and all the people who actually died(or most to be fair) were under some sort of a negative placebo effect caused by all this negative hype. I haven't gathered enough info nor collected my thoughts yet but so far something is really fishy about this so-called "swine flu"!.

Wake up health ministry. Dont shut your eyes to this endemic and pretend all's well. Why is the ministry not try to curb huge gatherings instead of trying to cite various other health problems with higher fatality rates?? Its true malaria has a higher fatality but is it transmissible from person to person via cough and sneeze? Malaria can also be curbed with proper fogging. Please spread awareness, dont encourage huge public gatherings during festivals. Dont hide the actual scenario from common man.

13 swine flu deaths take India's toll to 277 Source: **************************************************** Its a shameful for India's health minister that Swine Flu is spreading in india as a wildfire,because maximum deaths are due to improper/belated diagnosis,and no timely treatment. The condition could have never been so difficult if timely actions could have taken.Like strict imposing of rules on tourists,schools etc. But no our health minister was busy saying how India is far more behind in terms of stats of death toll proportionate to our population.Now dont think only but take swine flu a bit seriously. Its a shameful thing that many of dead due to swine flu are later confirmed from govt. laboratories. Infection later confirmed after death..its digusting. how can we say that health system is proper in India. Also testing is done only on the patient when the Govt. hospitals doctors thinks that he/she is eligible for test,yeah it might be the reason tha

With comin Diwali in a months time, India enters winter season. It is still carrying a large number of flu patient. And hence super boom in number is expected. Pune the most infected is adopting policy of zero death, by reaching to the masses with preventive approach. Tamiflu has been made available to chemists for sale on prescription. This may lead to arresting the flu to some extent. Indians are also using aurvedic medicines to great success at least in seasonal flu. Since symptoms of swine flu is similar, it is expected that same treatments may work in case of swine also. But no one knows for sure. However schools are still major spreaders of the disease. In fact many students who visited NASA became carrier of the disease to India.

To: Steve C of Brazil - Uberlandia — The "Worldwide Total" given by on deaths and infections was just sitting there in the Summary of Statistics chart, so i did a few divisions to make the world totals data comparable to the data of the different countries given by the different charts and published it as a comment. Maybe you did your arithmetic too, but most people don't have the time for those details. What i posted is not on any of the charts even though i used's data —that comes from "(Various Reliable Sources)"— in my divisions. Of course, i had to acknowledge my source, and i did: :)

Almost a quarter of global deaths are in Brazil. When the epidemic broke out, President Lula said that Brazil was ready to face it. Another BS story by a left government. Anyway, I don´t think Brazil will stay at the top for very much longer. Winter is arriving in the Northen hemisphere. India might probably be the worst affected. Human clinical trials for a vaccine will only START in October.

Hello Ronald, thanks for your response. I hope you'll understand my comment if I inform you that this wasn't the first 'error' that I reported (and at least 1x corrected by the editor). But I can understand that my comment looks a bit 'over the top', especially because the correct number (that were reported YESTERDAY in Brazil) was reported here earlier today already - and now also included in the updated tables. Thanks again!! :-)

Martijn, a day ago you were questioning where flucount got "1024" for brazil, clearly doubting the reliability of that figure. A day later, an official figure of 1031 comes out and you still comment that their source wasnt credible? I have been watching this site for a while and i've noticed that they definitely check their figures before posting them. I even caught an error once and emailed them and it was corrected that day. For the most part, I trust the figures reported on this site, even when they don't disclose their source. But to each their own.

9/22/2009 at 1:15 PM by Ronald of San Diego, CA
Hello Marcello, thanks for the new update from Brazil (which was dated monday 21 september, so the '1024 talk' was not back-up by a credible source). By the way the death toll in Brazil arrived yesterday at 1031, which indicates that the situation out there has gotten much more worse during the past 2 weeks. - English translation:

1024 swine flu deaths in BRAZIL??? ..., do you really have any credible source for presenting the "1024" number in your statistics? (The participants from Brazil didn't mention any source! And I can find any confirmation in nor 'google news')

9/21/2009 at 10:36 AM by Martijn of The Netherlands
TO André frrom Brazil. Most visitors to this site don´t speak Portuguese. Basically he (André) is ranting about the 1024 deaths in Brazil and the Government´s lack of treating people with respect. Well , it is actually true. Only the rich in Brazil gets treated with respect. And the politicians steal so much money, that little is left over to invest in health services and education. Corruption causes the health services to operate well below target and thousands of people have to wait in lines for many hours.

Swine flu infections are growing exponentially in India, but there is no coverage from the media (television or print), other than highlighting deaths due to other causes over swine flu. It appears that Indian govt. has decided to keep its eyes closed and let people suffer and die. Today we are no. 2 in the world in terms of swine flu deaths during the past week. I hope media opens its eyes and starts spreading awareness about swine flu without panicking the people. Do cover the swine flu deaths which are sometimes 7-8 in a day. Dont you cover a single death due to accident or dowry or suicide?

if dark are more socuptible then why some dark skinned continent are showing more resistance to the flu. It happens not only in winter but whenever seasonal flip takes place. It happens because the body is not adjusted to the changing season. The transition from winter to summer and summer to winter flips cause flu in india. Also rainy season causes such flu because body is not adjusted to rapidly changing temp and humidity in the environment. Vit D has got nothing to do with flu. Vit C does provide some relief as per popular claim, but not established.

9/18/2009 at 11:25 PM by mridul of pune, india
As far as dark-skinned people being more susceptilble to the disease it's most likely due to lower Vit. D levels. Hence the seasonal flu in the winter.

I hear that Australia have a "cure" for swine flu, a single dose does the trick.

After studying some internet facts, numbers, statistics, these are my unofficial findings: Swine flu can spread through any bodily fluids. (Take special care when using public bathrooms.) Washing hands often can slow it down a bit but there are far too many ways for it to spread. This strain of flu goes deeper into the lungs than a "normal" flu and destroys the tiny air sacs (alveoli) that deliver oxygen to the blood. Doctors in emergency situations cannot get enough oxygen to the patients which results in death. There is a drug which can prevent death but has not been fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration. It is called Peramivir. Approximately 2/3 of patients either have an underlying condition - OR - get a secondary bacterial infection. (Patient starts to recover then gets very ill again.) Patients are contagious longer. From first symptoms patients still have H1N1 in their nostrils 8 days later. Swine flu seems to take a larger death toll among darker skinned people. They are not sure if this is due to genetics or economics. Somewhere over the

Jeremy of Yemen - it's not enough to say "Yemen has 134 cases" - you have to provide a link to your source! I for one am GLAD the site doesn't get updated by numbers posted by every Tom Dick and Harry. If the site is slow in updates it probably because they are confirming the numbers. I'd rather the figures be delayed by a day or so than have it updated with figures that are wrong. Then again who do i know :7

SteveC of Brazil- Actually some suspect that the swine flu actually originated in the United States, in Wisconsin. I think FluCount might have even mentioned it in one of their reports some months ago. Anyway, I noticed that it's not just Pakistan that is nearly unaffected- but also Afghanistan. Interesting. Would love to hear the opinion of some of our Middle Eastern friends who frequent this site. Any thoughts on this topic?

TO salahib of pune, Wasn´t the first cases reported im MEXICO ??? Another thing, one WOULD THINK that if this SWINEFLU was an attack, wouldn´t it be just a bit more lethal? Not even 4000 have died worldwide! 4000 out of a world population of 6,7 billion is a drop in the ocean. More people die from other diseases. Malaria alone kills 3000 children PER DAY ! Contaminated water/food or poor hygiene and sanitation practices kill 1.7 million children worldwide. But now the world is in a state of panic because of a few swineflu deaths. And by the percentage of visitors to this site, guess who panics the most?

Salahib I donot agree with you. Because such act by china and pakistan will be of huge cost. And why would they go to US to release it. If they were invlovled they would have used india to release the virus. However your fiction has got some material to think. It is realy strange that India and pakistan having similar gene bank and similar lfe style, has such a contrast in exposure to the flu. May be flu season is yet to set in in Pakistan. whereas in India, in places like Pune and Bangalore it is flu season throughout the year because of low temperature. Only god knows the facts.

9/15/2009 at 12:21 AM by mridul of pune
Dear Horace of Westchester, NY. No legitimacy to my claim. It is just a fictitious(guess). I wish it is not true, but there are some coincidence which force me to think in the direction. 1. Avian flu had havoc in china. 2 china develops variants flu virus human+bird+swine. 3. china Has got material for tamiflu. 4. Uses pakistan population (a close military alies of china) as test case for vaccines. 5. Inoculates its population also. 6. Virus released in US. 7. Virus spreads wolrd over. 8. China death rate is negligible. Pakistan infection is negligible, where as in India nearly 200 deaths. Both these country have similar human gene bank. Then why this contrast. It is not worthwhile to investigate. Though it looks like a flight of fiction but has got some logic. I wish it is a fiction only. But if it has slightest of fact then the new world order will be governed by such attacks in future. God save us.

I have been wondering about India since before they even confirmed their first case. I hate to say it but I don't think they will fare very well. I think it won't be long before they take first place in terms of number of casualties. Then again, they have a population of what.. a billion? So I guess it would stand to reason that they would have a high mortality count.

some very simple steps - can be practiced to prevent the infection of H1N1 1. Frequent hand-washing (well highlighted in all official communications). 2. "Hands-off-the-face" approach. Resist all temptations to touch any part of face (unless you want to eat, bathe or slap). 3. Gargle twice a day with warm salt water (use Listerine if you don't trust salt). H1N1 takes 2-3 days after initial infection in the throat/ nasal cavity to proliferate and show characteristic symptoms. Simple gargling prevents proliferation. In a way, gargling with salt water has the same effect on a healthy individual that Tamiflu has on an infected one. Don't underestimate this simple, inexpensive and powerful preventative method. 4. Similar to 3 above, clean your nostrils at least once every day with warm salt water. Not everybody may be good at Jala Neti or Sutra Neti (very good Yoga asanas to clean nasal cavities ), but blowing the nose hard once a day and swabbing both nostrils with cotton buds dipped in warm salt water is very effective in bringing down viral populatio

Some facts aboutSwine flu Statistics. Its propagation rate is power of (1.3 - 1.7), Means one person can spread to 1.7 person on an average. Any thing of this sort is considered to be weak. To be powerfull the propagation factor should be =2. Death rate is also less than normal flu. Means more people die because seasonal flu. Then why to blame the poor weak swine flue H1N1. 25% population being wiped is a day dream of pharma companies who are manufacturing tamiflu and vaccination. It will never happen what may come. We all are going to survive.

To: Mr. of saudi arabia: (continued)[Part 2] — So in PUERTO RICO our "Infection And Death Rate Per Million of Population" is 103.5 cases (infections) per million and 8.56 deaths per million. — In SAUDI ARABIA your "Infection And Death Rate Per Million of Population" is 156.84 cases (infections) per million and 1.01 deaths per million. — In proportion (per million, to compare from a similar perspective) Saudi Arabia has more infections than Puerto Rico [156 and 103 per million respectively], but the deaths in Saudi Arabia are less that those in Puert Rico [1 and 8 per million respectively]. It means that prevention measures in Puerto Rico may be working a little better than in Saudi Arabia, but treatment results in Saudi Arabia are much better than in Puerto Rico. — I hope i explained so everybody could understand. ;) Adiós.

To: Mr. of saudi arabia: [Part 1] i suppose you mean me when you say "Mr kat" and ask "what does mean 5 of million […] death or cases". — When we say 15 cases (infections) in a (per) million it means that for every million people in the population of a given country there are 15 infected (cases per million). When we say 5 deaths in a (per) million it means that for every million people in the population of a given country there are 5 that have died (deaths per million). — The idea of calculating the rate per million people is to have a clearer comparison between countries that have very different population numbers. In Puerto Rico we have 3,971,020 (4 million approx.) people of which, until now, 411 have become infected (confirmed cases), out of which there have been 34 deaths. For every million people we have [411(total infections) ÷ 3.971020(total population in millions) = 103.5] between 103 and 104 infected people and of them [34(total deaths) ÷ 3.971020(total population in millions) = 8.56] between 8 and 9 die. — So in PUERTO RICO our "Infection And

jake47 - You don't know what your talking about. This is not like a normal flu. It is killing healthy young people and kids and pregant women. Already 100s of children are dying from it and school just started. soon millions will be dead. Give it some time jake it just started and will be around for a good 2 years. when it is all said and done you will think different if you are still alive that is. approx. 1 in 100 will die and if it mutates it could be 5 in 100 and if it combines with the bird flu then it will be 25 in 100 or more! Wake up jake!

There is nothing as powerful as knowledge. I gather info in order to protect my family. It just makes living easier if you have the knowledge

People! People!! Calm down!! its a curable disease and an avoidable one, just take precautions and make sure you catch it early in the unfortunate case of getting it!! Stop with all the madness!!!!

Well it is fact the H1n1 is dangerous, but based on statistics: is H1N1 more dangerous than Normal flu or H5N1? Almost more than 90% was the fetality in H5N1 (Sars) and a huge number of people die every year due to the normal flu, and now we are saying this is dangerous avoid everything and dont go out?! people we should enjoy out time but not that often!! Btw Mr.faisal, it is 1 death per 135 cases!

9/8/2009 at 6:15 AM by Shabib of Oman
when Frequency says 1 in 135, does that mean 1 death in 135 cases, or 1 case in 135 people ?

To: of South Africa. The info is probably wrong because the authorities don´t report the exact numbers. I know the info from Brazil is incorrect...we have a very corrupt government. I also think that most (if not all) countries report less deaths than they actually have. The reasons are obvious.

9/8/2009 at 2:23 AM by Steve of
The information on this site is wrong and totally outdated. If you want to make a site like this available to the public then keep it updated on a daily basis.Have people that had swine flu tell their story. It will assist the public to have a broader understanding of what to expect.

Friends, this is end of the world. Let us not fancy the doomsday prediction. Such predictions are known to have ended several civilizations, because they comitted sucide even before the predicted doomsday arrvied. Which never happened. This resluted in some vanishing and others surviving. A flu virus is weak enough to cause any harm, whatsoever.

Italy reports first swine flu death.Italy has announced its first swine flu victim - a 51-year-old Neapolitan man with chronic heart problems, who died in a Naples hospital on Friday morning. Cotugno Hospital health director, Dr Cosimo Maiorino, said swine flu, also known as the AH1N1 virus, was one of several serious health problems the patient suffered, and might not have been the sole cause of death.

9/5/2009 at 1:24 AM by Marcello of netherlands
Yes, India is another country where Tamiflu is not sold in public. In govt. Patient report late in the Hospitals. By the time swab results are out, atleast 5 to 7 days have gone, and it will be of no use when patients are given tamiflu in India. And there is a fear that delayed administration of tamiflu has itself resulted in side effects and hence more than 100 deaths. The only advantage India has gained that, right now it does not have resistant virus. But after sometime (few seasons), resistant virsu will get imported from other palces and tamiflu will be ineffective any way. I feel easy access to tamiflu in early stages would have made the difference in Death rates in India. But thats an if.

Dont know if the other contries the numbers of fatallities are so different with the official numbers like Brazil.Because Brazil is the only country of world where Tamifly was denied to be sell for the population and the govern doesnt was abble to give the medicine in the time recomendable till 48 hours of beggining of desease to population.So this enourmous number of fatalities in just 3 mounths.

The virus is a very weak one. In India Pune is most effected with nearly 900 infected(Daignosed), and only 35 deaths in nearly one month. It is not epidemic. India has seen worst epidemics where millions have died. The helath services are poor. Hoarding of medicines take place. Govt. hospital sell medicines in Black, even then people are surviving, or perhaps cases are not being reported. Though it might have shrtend several life but deaths are far less than any terrorist attacks. It seems nature is helping punekars to fight the onslaught of virus(May be a tailored, but failed virus). Human can not win over nature. It provides a way out.

Virologist of USA: The data (your posts) suggest that you not a virologist. If you were, it would be unlikely for you to assert that the available data prove "the H1N1 is a weak virus" -- or any other statement of proof for that matter. The data further suggest the possibility that you define virologist as someone who regularly views cable news coverage of H1N1.

A second swine flu death in Bahrain. A young healthy 24 year old man who was misdiagnosed by a private hospital to receive proper treatment only after suffering from acute respiratory failure. No one dies from the regular seasonal flu even if not given proper treatment at first. This virus is different and deadly.

9/3/2009 at 9:37 AM by Concerned of Bahrain
Thanks for this great site! To Frank in New Orleans, the virus is spreading more rapidly in the winter v summer. Look at how Brazil has taken off recently while they're in winter and the US and Mexico have tapered off in the summer. We will most likely see a resurgance here again very soon, but the numbers in Brazil are not too bad (ie 1918 flu scary numbers). My condolances to all who have lost a family member, I do not mean to trivialize that.

in the begaining the flu can affect old people and kids but now Oman records death for 20-30 years old & healthy. so why no body mention the the virus can be strong than befor? when you whach the records of death you get scarred but if you already lost one of your family and see the records you feel that you are next.

9/3/2009 at 1:14 AM by Nasser Al-Rahbi of Oman
I sort of agree with the virologist, but then again, otherwise healthy people in their 20s don't really die from the typical seasonal flu.. im one of them, and i have never had any friends, or even known of anyone close to my age, who's healthy and then gets the flu and dies. it just doesnt happen. not to mention........... all these deaths happened in the spring and summer! the regular flu wasn't killing anyone during that time.. thats why im worried what might happen during the time of year when the flu DOES typically kill people.. but i feel as tho none of us will be right or wrong until we see how this plays out throughout the winter. good luck and good health to everyone reading this.

9/2/2009 at 10:28 PM by Frank of New Orleans, LA
The reason why we all think the virus is spreading at an alarming rate is pretty simple....we are actually monitoring this virus to the T. We do not follow every flu outbreak every year, and trace where the virus has moved. I bet you if we did that we'd see pretty similar results. The world goes through influenza movements every single year. Again, don't panic. Get yourself vaccination, esp if you are pregnant and have little children. Most older people who have had several previous seasonal flu vaccines may be immune to H1N1 because the seasonal flu vaccine contains H1N1 proteins as well.

9/2/2009 at 6:59 PM by Virologist of USA
Listen guys, As tragic as all the deaths are, the numbers are VERY very low. This proves that the H1N1 is a weak virus and that it is like a typical flu season. Remember, on an average flu season, over 500,000 people die worldwide. So, please DO NOT PANIC! Wash your hands, cover your mouths, if you have the flu rest and stay dehydrated. I'm a virologist with extensive exp with viruses.....

I must say that I am very surprised at how some US States counts are crazy high and other very low. What does that say??? Well I am in Ohio and last I knew of or at least the most accurate count that I can get is around 180 cases?

To "TheLord of Here now". One day obviously all have to die, but not at the same time, and not due to flu like the one which is gripping the world. Because it is a weak virus, and is growing weaker day by day. Its propagation is only power of 1.6 and hence is no way different than normal seasonal flu. In fact by taking precautions for swine flu, people will save themselves from the normal seasonal flu also, and over a period of time we will find that number of seasonal flu patient and of course the average death due to flu will decrease. This will be for good of humanity. If virus can mutate, so can human race. The immunity or mechanism to fight against new virus is inbuilt in the living beings. Virus have existed even before human being came. But humanity is still surviving. No one is scared of death. But your statement appears as if the swine flu is a death sentence pronounced by you for all. Let me tell you it is not so. And people should not be scared of it. There appears to be some business minded people who are spreading fear among world community so that sale of vaccine is po

India crosses 100 mark. And many more are critical in major epicenters like pune and bangalore. Which may take the toll to nearly 150 before deaths subsides. Those who died of the flu, their sole may rest in peace. I hope Health minister is watching the figures, which he called was negligible in the intial stages.

8/31/2009 at 11:02 PM by Meme of Saudi arabia
Hey, be reasonable please guys! One CANNOT add arabic onto this site. English is THE universal language,always has been,always will be. It is nothing personal. If one adds arabic then we would have to add chinese,korean,russian,hebrew,greek,and a hundred african and oriental and indian and,and,and etc,etc languages to be fair! No can do. Yet again for all these over sensitive people out there, "nothing personal", "nothing racist" just pure straight forward, be reasonable and be thankful that this site is in English, the international language and not any other which a handful of the worlds population can understand. By the way, you simply CANNOT ONLY TAKE VIT C AND ZINC WHEN YOU GET SICK. One has to take it 365 days of the year, it acts as a preventative so it stands to reason to take it 365 days.The best is with garlic and marshmallow,horseradish,funugreek. All these boost immunity and I must say that I do and have not had flu (even with my husband and daughter having had swine flu)for about 10 years, I also have not had gastro or any other ailment. Try it. Good luck, swine flu in

2nd death in New Mexico.

8/31/2009 at 2:43 PM by nick of california
I just recovered from the swine flu and I would like to share my experience. I started feeling like I was coming down with a cold, so I started my normal vitamin-c / zinc regimen like I usually do when I feel i'm coming down with something (maybe its just the placebo effect, but it seems to work for me). Anyway, I didn't get better, and after a few days I felt very very sick. I had fever, I vomited, and I panicked. After I was diagnosed, I searched the internet for any info I could find. I came across this site, and after reading about the relatively low chances of dying, I started to feel better. Again, probably mental. A week later and I'm nearly 100% recovered - hopefully with immunity now (assuming it doesnt mutate!).

Though flu has spread to various parts, except africa, and apperas to have pandemic shape, but its rate of spreading is very low. It multiplication factor is only 1.6, which makes it slow spreading. And its incubation period in a person is only 10 days. Infact that is ture for most of the flu. Thos woh are dying, are dying because of underlying medical conditions, such as diabetes, heart, HIV etc. Normal people tend to survive. What we are seeing is death rates and not the survival rate. World average death rate is 1.13%, which means survival rate, with or without tamiflu will be nearly 98%. Many cases go unnoticed and undiagnosed. Many death are wronlgy attributed to swine flu. So Friends let us chher up and don't worry. After all virus is tiny invissible particle. How can it wipe off the mankind. Terrorists are more dangerous than these viruses.

Good news for pune. Only 3 new cases and 1 death in last 24 Hrs. Out of 3 lakh reported for screening only nearly 845 have been detected to have swine on cumulative basis. And only 26 deaths. Means death rate for pune is only 3%. Though high but new cases have been arrested and people have stopped using mask, inspite of Ganpathi Celebration which attracts huge crowds. It is encouraging to see how people have braved the tiny invisible viruses in Pune, against all odds. It appears swine could not become an epidemic leave aside pandemic. Besides precautions people have taken spices for flu and it has really helped, atleast first wave of swine has subside. In winter pune gets very few cases of flu and hence it will not be effected this winter. But we have to be prepared by next rainy season in June-Sep 2010, may be with a time tested vaccine

Word has it that there are 115 dead allready - in my city! I cannot verify this at this stage, but I´m trying. If it´s true, then the epidemic is much worse than we thought and we are being lied to by the authorities. Why? Keep the economy going at all costs, of course. Some universities in the region are closing next week.

India has stopped counting its swine infection and news channels are buy with Pokharan II and BJP infighting. India's actual infection must be several time higher and hence the death rate must be lower.

... and because the 15% is related to the full week, one could dived this percentage with 7 to find a representative percentage for the average 'daily' growth of the global swine flu related death reports. (Again, earlier this month the 'momentum' of average daily reports peaked at 5.9% between august 5 and august 7)

8/24/2009 at 7:03 PM by Martijn of The Netherlands reported on aug 10: 'There have been 394 new swine flu deaths since our last report just 7 days ago (average of 56.3 deaths per day)'; and on aug 17 reported: 'During the past 7 days since our last status report, there have been 454 new confirmed swine flu deaths across the world. With an average of 64.9 deaths per day, this represents a 15% increase over last week's average daily death count of 56.3.'. I REPEAT: this '15%' should actually be devided through 7 (= days) ... resulting in a 2.14%. For, by fact the 15% is directly related to the growing numbers during the full week (aug 10: 394; aug 17: 454 = 454-394=60 = 60/394 = 15%!!!)

Thanks Steven Honaker!! Your source ( describes on page 7 what I observed last week in the global swine flu related death rates reported at the momentum of global swine flu related deaths peaked earlier this month; week 31 has shown an average daily growth of 3,76% in global death reports (+ 261 deaths); week 32 has shown an average daily growth of 4.97% in global death reports (+ 436 deaths), week 33 has shown an average daily growth of 3.35% in global death reports (+ 396 deaths) ... and week 34 (last week) has shown an average daily growth of only 3.16% in swine flu related global death reports (+ 461 deaths, and ending last sunday at 2479 'official' global death reports).

latest figure as of now for india, Total Confirmed cases 2800, deaths 71. Nearly 1600 swabs not tested. Several thousands having minor symptoms have been just ignored. Several death contributed to other causes. Ispite of all this, India has a huge population. If swine can not infect large population in India then it is not at all potent. It should infect atleast 100000 to be any where being called as dangerous virus, in the first wave itself, and death rates could be as high as 10% (means nearly 1000 deaths). After all India has win the gold medal for swine race. Other countries will be left far behind if swin flu is realy potent. Best wishes to all of us in India.

Indian management is still patting his back, as the death toll and infected cases rises. Next general election is 5 years down the line. He feels for a poulation of 1.3 crores it is still very small percentage. However India's death rate percentage is worst than many underdeveloped nations. India is still thriving, proves the existance of GOD.

The Brazilian Health Organization says the death rate in Brazil is low and that the situation is worse in other countries like the U.S. The problem is, Brazil's populations is 190 million and we already had 488 deaths, while the U.S, with a much larger population, had 499... You do the math.

8/23/2009 at 9:37 PM by Marina of Brazil
Two days have passed and the number of deaths in Brazil remains the same. At least that's what the government wants us to believe. Health facilities are crowded all over the country with people presenting flu symptoms, and they have to wait over 12 hours in line to see a doctor. Tamiflu is only being prescribed to some members of the risk group; if you're not in the group, you have no chance to get the medication, even if your symptoms are serious and have evolved to complications like pneumonia. Many people are dying every day because of this but the cause of death is said to be pneumonia, not swine flu. The doctors are no longer testing the patients for the H1N1 virus and we have no idea of how many people have the flu or even how many actually died because of it. The press completely ignores the subject, leaving everyone in the dark about the true facts and consequences of the swine flu. Many have been led to believe that the disease is under control and there's no reason to worry. The Brazilian Health Organization says the death rate in Brazil is low and that the

Politics or nationality have nothing to do with this virus as we all know. The Australian Government continuously encourage Her people to eat healthy balanced diets with more fruit and veg as well as go out of their way to encourage more physical activities , i.e to become more fit and healthy. This healthy diet and lifestyle is probably the key to recovering from this infection and even the worlds poorest nations have some sort of abundance of fresh fruit and veg and can certainly walk instead of ride.Its worth a try anyway. And YES, daily Vita C is vitaly important.

Is it true that 1/3 human being will infected with this virus? I heard from somewhere.

8/19/2009 at 10:54 PM by of Tapah Malaysia
... Let me try again: the 454 new deaths that were reported last should be related to the starting point last week of 1861 deaths - which corresponds to a weekly growth of 24.3% last week. The week before last week: we saw 394 new deaths which should be related to the starting point of that week of 1467 - which corresponds to a growth of 26.8% in that week. You see? The percentage went from 26.8% two weeks ago, to 24.3% last week!!! This illustrates that the growth of reported deaths ... actually eased down!!! I hope you will now recognize my point that the '15% conclusion' ... is actually an example of "fooling around with statistics!!!" (Again, sorry that I made a mess of this discussion earlier today)

8/19/2009 at 6:34 PM by Martijn of The Netherlands
[SORRY, MY MESSAGE WAS BROKEN-OFF AGAIN] ... Anyway, I hope you all noticed the very specific conclusion which I have described at my own website - based on the numbers reported at "...the percentages in the table below definitely illustrate that 'the first wave' of the swine flu pandemic has likely PEAKED in the first week of august, and then went on retreat!!" - Which means it's still growing, but the 'growth-momentum' has actually SLOWED DOWN during the past week. THANKS!!!!!

8/19/2009 at 3:44 PM by Martijn of The Netherlands
Hello jzepps ... oeps, sorry and thanks!! Pfff, obviously I got lost during my own writing - for you're absolutely right: in my second post I have been talking about 64.9% + 56.3% ... while these percentages don't exist at all!! *****(FLUCOUNT.ORG manager ... if possible, feel free to delete my response to 'Author of Yesterday's FluCount Summary')***** ANYWAY,... I think I used an incorrect argument - but the point which I made in my first message is still waiting for consideration! Let me try to put it more simple - fact is: deaths rised last week with 454 cases (= about 24% compared with the numbers at the beginning of last week); then how can the conclusion be: '...this represents a 15% increase over last week's average daily death count of 56.3'??? This conclusion suggests a DAILY RISE in death counts of 15% ... while the absolute numbers of deaths have risen ONLY 24% during last week??? Impossible ... that's why I started this discussion! Sorry, I made this mess while writing my 2nd message ...I better give up!! (Anyway, I hop

8/19/2009 at 3:41 PM by Martijn of The Netherlands
i didnt want to get involved but im sorry martijn, im going to have to side with the author here, i just dont understand your point. first of all your math is wrong.. you're subtracting 64.9 - 56.3, which comes to 8.6 ... which would be fine if 64.9 and 56.3 were percentages, but they're not, they represent deaths, so the math doesnt stop there.. 8.6/56.3 = about 15%, which i confirmed on my calculator. sorry for butting in martijn but your math is wrong and i had to say something.

Hello Author of Yesterday's FluCount Summary! Thank you for confirming that the 15% growth relates to the COMPLETE week: 'The week, as a whole, represents a 15% increase in reported deaths.' (Yes, I understood how you found the 15% ... however the suggestion in your conclusion that the 15% relates to a DAILY count is completely incorrect) Instead of the 15% that you've described you actually should have written 8.6% (let me explain: 64.9% - 56.3% = 8.6%!!! NOT 15%!!! ... you should not have used the 'quotient' again, because the percentages 64.9% and 56.3% are already the result of a quotient!) So, I hope you will recognize the need to make a litte change in your conclusion - you can decide yourself what to change: 1) changing the percentage from 15% into 8.6%, OR 2) by deleting the word DAILY in you conclusion '...average DAILY death count'. Good luck with figuring out what will be best! Greetings from The Netherlands! :-)

8/19/2009 at 2:47 AM by Martijn of The Netherlands
Martijn, I do value your feedback. At FluCount, we try to be objective and only report actual, factual figures, although I will admit that it isn't always possible to sound completely unbiased. That being said, I will explain where the 15% figure came from. During the week of August 4-10, we had reported 394 new deaths. During the week of August 11-17, we reported 454 new deaths. The week, as a whole, represents a 15% increase in reported deaths. Another point to remember is that the deaths may have occurred a week or two ago; we are only referring to the period during which those deaths were reported, not necessarily occurred. Also, unfortunately, week-over-week death rates are not something we have been tracking from the beginning, so we cannot entirely determine the scope of the change (for example does 15% represent an increasing or decreasing trend?). Regardless, critical feedback is always appreciated, as it helps to strengthen the goal that we are all working towards together. Thank you for the input.

8/18/2009 at 5:06 PM by Author of Yesterday's FluCount Summary
(SORRY, MY MESSAGE WAS BROKEN-OFF, CONTINUE )... during the past week ... which sort of indicates that your 15% CONCLUSION should DEFINITELEY NOT BE ASSOCIATED WITH A DAILY GROWTH ... !!!) Reminds me of the saying: 'There are lies, demned lies ... and there are statistics' - one shouldn't jump into conclusions when doesn't master the basic principles of statistics. [I sincerely hope that you will be able to value my 'critical' feedback, thanks! Martijn van Mensvoort, from The Netherlands - you can find the details I described in the table at: ]

8/18/2009 at 4:06 PM by Martijn of The Netherlands
HELLO FLUCOUNT.ORG ... I think yesterday you've presented a very questionable conclusion by saying: "... With an average of 64.9 deaths per day, this represents a 15% increase over last week's average daily death count of 56.3". For, I have been following your data during the past month and I have just 'discovered' that your data (contrary with your conclusion) by fact ILLUSTRATES THAT THE FIRST GLOBAL SWINE FLU WAVE LIKELY HAS 'PEAKED' IN THE FIRST WEEK OF AUGUST!!! Only a moment ago I have updated some data at my website (again, the data are based on the data you've presented here at!) which clearly shows that the 'momentum' of the AVERAGE DAILY GROWTH OF DEATH REPORTS + LAB VERIFIED CASES ... has 'dipped' during the past few days BELOW 2.0%!!! (Far below your 15% figure) - While the 'momentum' of the death reports was at 5.9% during august 5-7!!! (Again, please notice, your 15% is COMPLETELY OUT OF PERSPECTIVE, for, the growth of 454 cases during the past week represent a growth of about 24% during

Shantanu: for one, there is no international standard on how to count deaths from flu (e.g. somebody dies, having heart-disease and swine-flu, might be counted as a flu dead, or as a dead from heart disease), secondly: and C: just think...

Brazil - This evening Belgium television presented a news report from Brazil which said that out of 192 swine flu related deaths in Brazil ... 28 were PREGENANT WOMEN! (That's over 14%!!!) Notice: 2 weeks ago a US analysis described that 13% of the first 45 swine flu deaths in the US were pregnant women - source:

Global 'swine flu death rate momentum' is now rising significantly!!! - Statistics at indicate that the LAB VERFIED SWINE FLU DEATHS were last week at an 'average daily-growth momentum' of about 3.0%; while during the past 3 days this daily average has risen to 5.9% - source:

8/7/2009 at 5:16 PM by Martijn of The Netherlands
Comment: The Americas (North, South & Central) account for only about 14% of the world's population, but account for fully 82% of swine flu fatalities.

The CDC is reporting 436 deaths in the us as of 8/6/09.

8/7/2009 at 9:20 AM by of Charleston Sc
Guam,Puerto Rico,US Virgin Islands these are all US Territories and their cases are confirmed by the CDC I do not understand why they are not listed with the US as this changes our case count and death totals?

This is frightening. There are 910 confirmed and probable cases of this FLI (flu-like illness)in my county alone. It seems like the media is downplaying it, but from what I read, it is making people really sick. I'm worried about the vaccine. Back in the 70's my cousin was one of the people who got the vaccine and died very soon afterward. Does this mean I should be wary of the vaccine if it affected a close family member like that?

SAnjeev of India- From what I can tell, the numbers come from news reports and press releases. If you post a link to a new stat, it seems like it gets updated into the site pretty quickly. So I guess we are all authors. And in terms of authenticity.. where, on the internet, are you ever guaranteed authenticity? This seem as close as you get. PS.. there is usually a source behind most of the numbers in the "news clips" section

Who is the author of this site? How can the authencity be guaranteed?

World Heath Org stops reporting accurate statistics but we can still find stories like these easily: "A critically-ill patient suffering from swine flu was flown 700km by helicopter because it was the best option available, Queensland health officials say. The incident came as health authorities warned of a possible second wave of the virus after a peak later this month. The patient was flown from Atherton east to Cairns where no beds were available in intensive care at that city's hospital. "

WOW! Now this seems scary! "A 15-YEAR-OLD Brazilian girl who was suffering flu-like symptoms died on a flight home to Sao Paulo after a group trip to Disneyland in Florida, media here reported. She complained of feeling seriously ill on the plane before losing consciousness. Two doctors on board tried in vain to revive her."

8/3/2009 at 2:00 AM by of Guam
Yes that number about Michigan is accurate, which I cross-referenced to this document: I bet the number is even higher now

8/2/2009 at 1:31 PM by Don of Cambridge, MA
oops sorry, meant to type 3,166 unconfirmed.

8/1/2009 at 7:45 PM by smom of Michigan
515 confirmed and 3600 uncomfirmed cases in Michigan? Is there really that many unconfirmed, that is a heck of a spike in a very short time period.

I agree - the numbers being reported by the WHO and even the CDC just do not come close to the total sum of individual reports (i.e. I don't understand the reason - if not a cover-up then what?

7/30/2009 at 1:39 AM by John of Guam Why they remove it yesterday its a disturbing fact?

FredA: I'm not implying anything, just wondering... I can only rely on those numbers from RKI (Robert Koch Institute). I guess those numbers are reliable since RKI is leading institute in Germany and reports directly to the government. For days now RKI is reporting that every day around 80% of new infections got infected on vacation, most of them in Spain. On the other side you can read articles published by Spanish health authorities (here I have to rely on translations) saying that there is no flu-hot-spot on Mallorca for example... And Spain is reporting very few numbers to the ECDC, for whatever reason... I'm just being curious...

7/29/2009 at 11:53 PM by Ben of Germany
Ben, if i'm understanding you correctly, are you implying that the count in Spain is being understated, to prevent loss of tourism?

7/29/2009 at 2:17 PM by FredA of N. America
and another thing: there iss no worldwide standard for counting death due to flu. When somebody who has cancer and flu dies, this poor guy may be counted as a flu-dead or a cancer-dead (like in GB, where the official numbers of deaths were reduced last week)

7/29/2009 at 5:39 AM by Ben of Germany
in addition to what FredA said: I'm wondering why there is a country like spain with nearly unchanged numbers of infected and in Germany numbers are rising like hell. Among those newly reported cases 80% got infected on vacation, most of them in Spain... So Germans are infecting Germans in Spain and none of the Spanish gets ill?! Sometimes it's all about the money, especially when you depend on tourism! Got it?! ;-)

7/29/2009 at 5:37 AM by Ben of Germany
jgolden- maybe the reason the United States has a much higher CFR than most of Europe is due, in part, to the fact that much of Europe has nationalized health-care. A lot of Americans don't have health insurance - and those same people generally don't have a lot of money, and can't afford to take time off work. Therefore- 1) they don't go to doctors, and 2) they continue to go to work, spreading their virus. All politics aside, i genuinely believe that has a lot to do with the higher than normal death rate. Look at the death rate in S. America.. where even fewer people have health insurance..

7/28/2009 at 2:56 PM by FredA of N. America
I think there should be an index comparing the cases of death with the size of the country (either in area but also with the total population). This would give an idea of the virus concentration in the country!

7/28/2009 at 10:02 AM by of netherlands
I think now is the time to stop posting new cases and instead just post ther death count for each country and state. As a previous commentator has noticed, the death rate is continuously increasing, This is due to the fact that deaths are counted far more easily that new cases and usually only the hospitalised cases atre being counted. Invariably the total numbers of actual cases are so far wide of the mark that there is no significance whatsoever in the reproted cases. Unfortunately the number of deaths is now at levels seen in the number of reported cases in ealy May and i fear , that the deaths will sise just as fast as the reported did through May and June, with the terrible thought that thereafter the numbers will continue rising just as fast except that the victime will all be missed and none will go unreported

I think that to really fully take advantage of the new % chart "[total#needed] Visitors to FluCount during the past 7 days" it would be necessary to specify the number of unique visitors for those trailing 7 days. Is it 23.72% and/or 1.12% of how many visitors? 1000, 10000, 100000, ? ;)

7/27/2009 at 7:28 PM by katlpablo of Puerto Rico
I am going to be totally drunk when this pandemic hits at full force. You can also find me posting stupid things on flutracker. I love it.

7/27/2009 at 5:52 PM by VJP of USA
Wondered why the death to case ratio in the Americas seems more than twice that for the rest of the world.

Micronesia and Northern Marianas Islands are the very same place - Micronesia includes Northern Marianas Islands and Guam actually - Although Guam could be kept separately as it is a direct US Territory.

7/27/2009 at 12:59 AM by John of Guam
It would be lovely to factor in country population as well - % infection of country or % death by country (looks like Australia is highest for at least the first)

Swine flu could kill hundreds of thousands in U.S. if vaccine fails, CDC says.,0,3387335.story

7/24/2009 at 2:37 PM by of Charleston Sc
the CDC are still going to count and report the number of H1N1 hospitalizations and deaths across the US weekly

7/24/2009 at 11:54 AM by of Charleston Sc
Jolly, I read that story on It is an estimation of how many people might be infected. Confirmed are only those 11,159 the UK government has notified the ECDC of.

7/23/2009 at 2:32 PM by Ben of Germany
BBC reports 100000 new cases of swine flu in the UK in the past week

7/23/2009 at 10:06 AM by D. Jolly of England
Could you add a CFR by state for the US totals? Would be nice to not have to calculate each one. Thanks :-)

7/23/2009 at 9:47 AM by Angel_B of CA
Germany counts 2455 today, 0 dead; from those 637 newly reported since yesterday, 528 came back to Germany from holidays and got infected on vacation

7/23/2009 at 6:43 AM by Ben of Germany
The number of the people who get the flu in Bahrain is more then 29 person. It's about 80

I would be interestig if you had your page-hit-count and statistics visible or available so visitors could have some vague idea of the scope and locations of the world wide concern —or lack of— the AH1N1 virus is generating.

Let me clarify.. im sure most of the people in China are otherwise good people, just trying to get by, living their-day-to-day like many of the rest of us. Its the dictatorial government that i, and many other freedom-lovers, have a problem with.

7/15/2009 at 1:09 PM by Octavio of Houston, TX
I do find it strange that china is at the bottom of the death rate list. I mean, do people not have "underlying conditions" in china?? Also, dont most types of flu (avian, etc) originate in the far east?? I do find it hard to believe that there hasn't been a single death in china from the swine flu. I don't blame this site, i blame the misinformation the chinese government releases. Keep in mind, this is the same government that has ordered computer manufacturers to install filtering software (Green Dam-Youth Escort) that not only filters websites the government deems "inappropriate" but also sends personal data on its users to the government. It makes me sick. That's right, I called them a "third world toilet" and for "Dam" good reason. JMHO.

7/15/2009 at 1:05 PM by Octavio of Houston, TX
I had swine flu, wasnt not that bad, almost died but hey i lived and shit happens !

7/14/2009 at 5:21 PM by A- of AUS
"Octavio" You are the Bigot, You called china a "third world toilet". I only called it what it is a 3rd world country. most of china's population lives in poverty! They refer to China right on television as a third world country. I owe no apology to a country who sends toxic food and toys to America to kill our dogs and children!
