So what is going on?
First the "positive" headlines...

And now headlines that don't look so positive...

So what is really going on?
Reports say that the CDC is only testing severe cases.
So how many cases are out there that are not confirmed?
And if the cases are not severe enough to be tested, whats the problem?
According to WHO, 18 countries have officially reported 898 cases of influenza A(H1N1) infection.
Mexico has reported 506 confirmed human cases of infection, including 19 deaths.
The United States Government has reported 226 laboratory confirmed human cases, including one death.
I guess the big question is how many cases are out there unreported, and could there be unreported deaths as well?
Here are the CDC's official stats on U.S. Human Cases of H1N1 Flu Infection as of May 3, 2009, 11:00 AM ET, from their website.....
Kentucky 1 (resident of KY but currently hospitalized in GA.)
New Hampshire 1
New Jersey 7
New Mexico 1
New York 63
Rhode Island 1
South Carolina 15
Texas 40, 1 death
TOTAL (30) 226 cases 1 death
From all the reports I'm reading, 226 cases in the US seems awfully low.
And here's something I found interesting...
At Google Trends, swine flu isn't even in the top 100 searches.
Really? Has interest fallen off that quickly?
That's kind of funny, because at Yahoo's Buzz Index, Swine Flu is still number one even with a 238 drop.
And at the trending topics on Twitter, Swine Flu is number two.
