H1N1 Pandemic Situation In Malaysia Week 09/2010 (28 February - 6 March 2010)

Now I'm going give you 2 reports on the latest H1N1 situation in Malaysia, the first is from the MOH Malaysia and the second is a news article from Bernama. You be the judge of the two reports and see the vast contrast in reporting. I'm very curious in why the MOH is in denial about us in Malaysia being in the second wave. We should inform the public accordingly.

MOH Update:

" Overall within the last week (28 February - 6 March 2010) there is a slight increase in the number of new cases with symptoms of Influenza-Like Illness (ILI) being treated in the hospital.

A total of 297 patients compared with 263 new cases in the previous week (increase 12.9 %). The remaining number of cases that are still being treated across the country on the last day of the week 09/2010 (6 March 2010) are 358 cases in 40 different government hospitals and 4 private hospitals which is an increase of 6.9% compared to the previous week.

Of these, 18 patients or 5.0% are positive cases of Influenza A (H1N1) confirmed through laboratory tests. Until March 6, 2010, the total number of positive influenza A (H1N1) cases is 12,488.

Number of cases currently being treated in the ICU is four (4) who compared to eight (8) cases in the previous week. Three (3) patients treated in ICU have risk factors. No new cases of H1N1 deaths and mortality remains at 77 now."

- Please read the whole report to get the big picture. Use Google Translate.

Bernama news article:

" There is no indication yet of a second wave of the Influenza A (H1N1) occurring, said the Director-General of Health Services, Tan Sri Dr Mohd Ismail Merican.

He said this was based on the monitoring of H1N1 clinical cases as well as the clusters of influenze-like ilnesses (ILI)."
