Is the weather in China particularly cold this year? Any idea if the regular flu season over there has been worse than normal as well or is this increased H7N9 spread due to viral drift?
Such a beautiful number, eight.

Good questions! I think their weather has been getting warmer like ours has. As far as seasonal flu I wouldn't trust the NHFPC but Hong Kong's CHP indicates it's an average year. It's hard to get reliable information out of most of these closed societies!

Thanks for the info. I checked flu.org.cn which, in my admittedly limit experience with the site, was pretty God-awful and had huge data gaps.
