Abstract Share this page

More than 3 years after the emergence of the 2009 pandemic influenza A H1N1 virus, the associated global mortality remains unclear. Of 18 500 laboratory-confirmed pandemic-associated deaths identified during April, 2009, to April, 2010, worldwide, less than 12% were reported from Africa and southeast Asia, although these regions are home to more than 38% of the world's population. Laboratory-confirmed deaths are gross underestimates of influenza-related mortality because of the lack of routine laboratory tests and difficulties in identification of influenza-related deaths triggered by bacterial superinfections or exacerbation of chronic illnesses.
