This graph shows the 7 day moving average of new Swine Flu cases reported in Australia. It’s easy to read: for example, it shows that on 16th July we were running at an average of about 550 new cases of Swine Flu being reported each day in Australia. Whereas, two weeks before (on 2nd July), we were running at an average of about 200 new cases being reported each day. I’m using a 7 day moving average because it smooths out day to day noise, and noise associated with lulls in weekend reporting.

This graph shows the number of people who are currently in hospital with Swine Flu in Australia (note that since the start of the pandemic 4,276 people have been hospitalised at some stage with Swine Flu here):
