Underreporting of 2009 H1N1 Influenza Cases
Influenza cases are difficult to track because many people don't go to the doctor or get tested for flu when they're sick. The first months of the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic were no different. In this podcast, CDC's Dr. Carrie Reed discusses a study in the December issue of Emerging Infectious Diseases that looked at the actual number of cases reported and estimated the true number of cases when correcting for underreporting. Created: 12/8/2009 by Emerging Infectious Diseases. Date Released: 12/8/2009. Series Name: Emerging Infectious Diseases.
