1st August update

1 08 2009

The Department of Health and Ageing’s figures for today put the new cases at 84 (a low figure because of the weekend). This takes the 7 day moving average of confirmed new daily cases to 712. See graphs below.  As always, you can see these graphs in more detail, as well as some others, at the top of this blog (at “Australian Swine Flu Graphs“, which I try to update daily). You can also, by the way, double-click on any of these graphs and that should blow them up for you to get a better look.

Hi I am in Qld and have been told that they are now not bothering to test for H1N1. Many people I know have had a “very nasty flu” but they all don’t think it was swine flu. How can these figures be anywhere near accurate?

I agree – they are understated by a few orders of magnitude – but hopefully they give an indication of the trend. Personally – I suspect that hospitalisations are a better indicator of the trend now.

Howdy Down Under!

What happened to our intrepid Aussie Blogger? No update since Aug 1!

I hope he hasn’t taken down with a dose of Novel A(H1N1) 2009 Panflu!!!!!!!
