Death rates quoted are wildly inaccurate[edit]

The article says that the mortality rates for common flu and H1N1 are 18% and 5%, respectively. This is completely wrong, and was probably calculated using the death rates for hospitalized cases only instead of all diagnosed cases. The actual death rates are both less than 1%. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.68.93.230 (talk) 22:45, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

flu AH1N1[edit]

the flu is an inexpertal virus caused becausa of the pigs —Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.217.3.85 (talk) 22:02, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

55 million / 8000 - 16000 : how to integrate into article[edit]

per [1] and [2] the CDC is now reporting estimated infections at over 55 million (55,000,000) and deaths at anywhere between 7,500 to 16,000 in the US as of January 15, 2010. Being as we're basing the numbers for much of this off of the CDC data : how should we incorporate this into the article and tables? [3] template and others use the statistics as a source, the 100,000 infected we are now reporting on here really seems very pale if the estimated is anywhere close to 55,000,000!!! Same with the deaths. A bit out of my depth here since I haven't been around this project for so long. Der.Gray (talk) 01:19, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Map and its legend do not match[edit]

{{2009 US swine flu outbreak image}} This map and its legend don't match. The map has 5 shades of grey; the legend has 4 values, including 1 green.

The map was maintained on Commons, and the legend changed, but no one updated the legend on the template here on En.Wiki. The person on Commons who updated the map seems to have done something weird as well... 65.92.182.197 (talk) 11:31, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
