Rapid estimation of severity of new pandemic influenza types is essential to gauge appropriate level of intervention; the some severe the more intense the intervention. During the 2009 pandemic, Mexican authorities reported substantial severity expressed as a high case fatality rate. In this report, prof Lone Simonsen from CHIP/PERSIMUNE at Righospitalet uses data from a global cohort study lead by INSIGHT to estimate this rate, and find that it was 16 fold lower than initial estimates. These observations can be used to more reliable assess severity in next influenza pandemic. Find the full publication here
