Pandemic Swine Flu – H1N1 Discussion for July 25 2009
Here is a brief discussion of the swine flu situation in select states. The CDC is no longer publicly tracking case numbers.
July 24, 2009 is the last day that CDC is providing individual confirmed and probable cases of novel H1N1 influenza. CDC will report the total number of hospitalizations and deaths each week, and continue to use its traditional surveillance systems to track the progress of the novel H1N1 flu outbreak.
- Arizona: 947 cases as of July 22, 2009. 157 hospitalizations and 15 deaths. Median age of patients is 15, meaning that 473 cases are age 15 or younger. 71% of the cases are in patients under age 24.
- Texas: 5,151 cases, of which 1,205 are in Hidalgo County just upstream from Brownsville on the Rio Grande. No other Texas county has even half that number. Hidalgo County’s count has been climbing for the last several weeks, though the urban counties in Texas initially lead the case counts. 27 related deaths. Count is as of July 22.
