Sadly that is where you are wrong though.
Here it is straight from the CDC.
Strange though. Didn't they say no more updates back in July?
The fact is that there ARE numbers being reported, and these are just the ones that the CDC is releasing.
What I see happening is this.
The Southern Hemisphere Flu Season was a test run. The flu season we are about to experience comes right after this "newest mutation" (aka lab created virus) which targets so many more people and new demographics.
To the debunkers:
I may have my tin foil hat on too snug but what I am seeing right now does not add up to be run of the mill virus mutating on its own.

Lol, Sorry, I'm British, but can't seem to find the articles that I read in the UK mass hysterical media ;-)
Being Process orientated (I work in IT modeling and business analytics's) I'm concerned about this flavour of flu, as it seems too coincidental to the current world climate to be totaly natural (my tin foil hat feeling)
So I've been looking for the clues that follow the path I suspect this would take if my worst fears were realised, first resistance to current medicines as in the tamiflu resistant mutations (I thought this would occur on the second wave, not the first wave) then the interspecies link that demonstrates 2 way transmission, which we've had with pigs and now poultry. Which opens the door to H1 combining with H5.. to be honest I thought that would happen late on the 2nd wave after a couple more mutations)
Ask yourself how frequently does a virus cross the interspecies divide, you get animal to animal, human to human, occationaly you get animal to human or human to animal..
So my question is how frequently do you also get a bi-directional virus crossing from human to animal and animal to human...
Finally how frequently does that then entail crossing multiple species all both directions.
Currently a pig with flu can infect a human that then can infect poultry that can infect a human that can infect a pig.. the combinations of infections/mutations in this case could be astronomical and for me is equally worrying.
This is actually mutating, and crossing the interspecies divide at an incredible speed. An incredible speed that does not match the number of infections, which are still quite low even compared to the usual seasonal flu.
My understanding is that flu mutates when it hits a road block, yet this variety seems to be mutating and crossing interspecies divides without hitting those roadblocks. The speed of mutations is the bit I am most puzzled about.
