H1N1 Pandemic Situation in Malaysia - Week 10/2010 (7 March - 13 March 2010)

The latest from MOH Malaysia with regards to H1N1. Please read the whole article and I will comment later.

" Overall, within the last week (March 7 to March 13 2010) there is an increase in the number of new cases with symptom of Influenza-Like Illness (ILI) being treated in the hospital. A total of 363 patients compared with 297 new cases in the previous week (22.2% increase). The remaining cases that are still being treated across the country on the last day of week 10/2010 (March 13, 2010) is 404 cases in 38 government hospitals and 8 private hospitals with an increase of 12.8% compared to the previous week. Of these, 18 patients or 6.9% is a case of Influenza A (H1N1) is confirmed through laboratory tests. Until March 13, 2010, the number of cases positive influenza A (H1N1) is 12.535. Number of cases treated in the ICU is a total of nine (9) who compared four (4) cases in the previous week. Six (6) patients treated in the ICU have risk factors. No new cases of H1N1 deaths and mortality remain outstanding until 77 now."

If you read the whole article (please use Google Translate), you would notice that all cases have increased drastically from last week (see my previous post) but still it is denied that we are in the second wave......I wonder why.
