Good News/Bad News on H1N1/Swine Flu

The good news: There appear to be fewer cases of H1N1/Swine Flu than originally reported. A large number in the original CDC reports appear to have been false positives.

The bad news: People have been told if they had H1N1/Swine Flu that they do not need the vaccine, because they are already immune. But many who were told they had it, did not and may be avoiding life-saving or epidemic-controlling treatments.

Expect there to be a lot of talk about this news, as it appears the CDC's efforts to keep people informed really made them increasingly misinformed.
