2009 H1N1 influenza
As of November 12, 2009, 1,659 confirmed cases of H1N1 have been reported throughout Massachusetts since April of 2009. The 2009-2010 influenza season officially started on October 4, 2009. Table 3 below represents H1N1 cases that have been confirmed in MA since October 4, 2009; the final column of this table is the number of cases of seasonal flu and influenza of unknown type, also since October 4. Table 4 shows the cumulative H1N1 cases that have been confirmed in MA since April 26, 2009. Both tables are updated weekly. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is no longer reporting the national total of confirmed cases of H1N1 and is instead focusing on hospitalized cases and deaths. Nationally, influenza-like illness (ILI) continues to be reported as widespread. Please visit the CDC’s website for up-to-date information (www.cdc.gov/h1n1).
