don't go to Franklin or Montgomery counties! I read yesterday that Ross County also has 1 H1N1 case.

I am still thinking more hype than any thing else. I'm not buying it. And I don't remember hearing who is making the shot.

I read in a online Cleavland article that the CDC has said that the H1n1 IS NOT AS DEADLY as first thought just if there are other medical issues, and it was on The Morning Show this morning that if it would have waited until January to hit then it would have been considered part of the normal flu strain/season. I pray for a speedy recovery for all those that are ill, and be obsessive about washing hands, covering coughs, and washing tables and chairs where kids eat and touch. ( think about wiping door knobs) every little bit of caution helps.

I am sorry but this information is misleading. Perhaps the hospitalization number is correct, but you cannot come close to relying on this for information about the presence of flu in your area. I cannot understand by the ODH and local health departments are choosing to water down information about this. I am in Scioto County. My family has had H1N1 this past week. Kids are getting the flu down here at an amazing rate. The doctors will test you for flu but not which strain. If you want to be tested for which strain, you can go to the Health Dept. and pay $400-500 for the test, and they will treat you no differently regardless of the results. They will also tell you if you have tested positive for flu, you most likely have H1N1 because seasonal flu is not here yet. How about a report that gives us accurate, real information we can use instead of treating us like we're stupid?

I do not feel this is accurate. I feel the numbers are much higher. Alot of Doctors are not testing people who said they have been exposed and they are just putting them on tamiflu. I know because that is what they did to my daughter.
