I have come to the conclusion that these 1, 2 and 3 number confirmations are some kind of tip off as to how many the counties actually have. I believe that they are really using the single digit's to track how many and how far it has spread and perhaps even the severity of it. Say 1 means like 100 people not very bad symptoms, 2 means 500 people not bad symptoms and 3 would mean like 500 people bad symptoms and hospitalizations etc.
The number's coming out are fudged as many of us know but these "new" numbers are just stupid to anyone who has been near a hospital or a doctors office lately. Even forgien countries that have admitted in their "own" paper's and new's reports that they have XX amount are seen as only having between 1-3 on our USA maps and report's. This new style of reporting fudged number's has a meaning people they know we aren't "that" dumb.

The secret battle plan against swine flu
13/05/2009
www.mirror.co.uk...
(per jonny2410)

Prepare for 'excess deaths', ban travel, postpone Euro elections

A secret battle plan to tackle swine flu is warning Britain must be ready for a wave of "excess" deaths.

And the plans, shown to the Cabinet's emergency Cobra committee yesterday, reveal that doctors are looking at 437 possible cases - seven times the official confirmed number of 68.

The document also shows if the pandemic continues to spread then people showing symptoms could be banned from travelling.

Schools in affected areas could be closed and European elections - expected to be poor for Gordon Brown - could also be postponed.

The secret National Situation Report, which was accidentally put on a Government website, said the UK "must be prepared for management of excess deaths" with guidance already given to coroners.

And doctors are dealing with 437 "possible, probable and confirmed" cases with a regional breakdown. It makes the UK the fifth hardest-hit behind Mexico, the US, Canada and Spain.

Hmm... Makes one wonder if they had the same thng go through here already and we just haven't seen the product of it yet.
It is really starting to get hairy all around now. I was pretty sure last week that the numbers where way off but was praying I was wrong. Thought maybe some people might have been right and this was all a big hype out. After what I have seen and people I have talked to since, an article like that really make's me wonder if perhaps it is true after all.

I'm guessing they've directed reporting agency's to include a low/med/high risk category to "blurbs" for some kind of risk coordination?

Swine Flu Goes Stealth
5/12/09 at 4:15 PM
nymag.com...

In the most chilling development yet relating to the Swine Flu Panic-demic of 2009, doctors have just reported that many patients with the virus don't even get a fever. Roughly one-third of patients admitted to two hospitals in Mexico City who were diagnosed with the H1N1 strain never reported an elevated temperature at all! This is problematic because it makes it more difficult for doctors to track, report, and combat the spreading disease — and what's more, it means that many people are actually suffering less. The primary troubles for these people who don't experience a fever are persistent cough and general malaise. This disease will stop at nothing, nothing, before it infects us all and spreads vague discomfort and extreme paranoia throughout the world.

Looks like they have some sort of game plan running through the Back Door eh?

They must of looked at their "Critical" infrastructure numbers and had their "Bean Counters" do the math...

Must be why States are "Hoarding" stockpiles and MSM is putting off treatments...beside the fact that it doesn't work very well and could make things worse...Hmmm...
