Northeast Homeland Security Regional Advisory Council Answers Questions About H1N1 and the Seasonal Flu

Arlington, MA – December 10, 2009 – Municipalities in Massachusetts should assume that the H1N1 Influenza is now present in their communities, schools, and work places, and should take appropriate precautions to prevent the spread of this virus as well as the seasonal flu. According to the Northeast Homeland Security Regional Advisory Council (NERAC), doctors throughout the State are reporting 3.5% of their office visits in the last week have been for influenza-like illness (ILI), this in comparison to only about 1% of those visits at this time last year. Most patients are not having a laboratory test performed, so the statewide numbers of actual H1N1 cases could be higher than the 1,768 confirmed cases that have been reported in the state of Massachusetts. While case rates are currently falling, history shows that flu pandemics run in cyclical patterns, and that officials do not believe the outbreak is over.
