One thought on “Incidence of death for 2009

  1. “112. China – 0.1 ”

    HaHaHaHa !

    (The places claiming, “an incidence of death of less than .05” are a bit lacking in plausibility as well.)

    Countries which in 2009,
    “reported cases of pandemic H1N1, but no deaths”
    or which, “have not reported any pandemic H1N1 cases”

    probably just have many many dead disposed of without any Panflu testing,
    and, are not interested, “due to political and economic pressures” in openly tracking Panflu cases.
