新型インフル、米で子供の死者急増…1週間19人
http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/feature/20090425-436828/news/20091031-OYT1T00769.htm
 【ワシントン=山田哲朗】米疾病対策センター(CDC)は30日の記者会見で、新型インフルエンザによる米国の18歳未満の死者が114人に急増したことを明らかにした。
 先週時点ではこの年齢層の死者は95人で、1週間で過去最多の19人が死亡した。
 米国では、ワクチン製造の遅れから、子供に対する新型ワクチンの接種が進んでいない。接種が受けられる場所では親子連れの行列もできている。
 例年、季節性インフルエンザによる子供の死者は数十人程度で、冬を前に、これを上回るハイペースで死者が増加している。CDCのトーマス・フリーデン所長は「残念だが今後も死者数は増える」と述べた。

Weekly 2009 H1N1 Flu Media Briefing
October 30, 2009, 1:30 p.m.

画像Thomas Frieden:
Children are particularly high priority for prevention and for treatment. This is a younger people's flu. In a usual flu season, 90% of the deaths are among people over the age of 65. In H1N1, 90% of the deaths are in people under the age of 65. Up until now, there have been 114 laboratory confirmed deaths among children. More than two-thirds of those have been children with underlying conditions. In terms of the numbers of cases, hospitalizations and deaths, our focus is to prevent cases as effectively as possible. And to encourage treatment. Counting cases, particularly the numbers of people who had influenza-like illness, is not something that's likely to be productive or accurate. We know that there have been many, many millions of cases. In terms of hospitalizations and deaths, we can provide information and we do on our website, each year, of the number of confirmed laboratory confirm hospitalizations and deaths. We know that that's an underestimate of the total. Because there are people who don't get reported or laboratories that don't test. Or laboratory tests that are falsely negative. And over the coming weeks, we hope to be able to give you the best available estimate of the number of hospitalizations and deaths to date. The number that you're familiar with, of 36,000 deaths per year from influenza in a normal flu year is based on estimates. Based on the best available scientific data of the burden of influenza. and we will having learned as much as we can from the pattern of H1N1, particularly in the communities where we have very intensive monitoring of hospitals and other sites of care, be able to estimate how many cases that are likely to have been or a range or an at-least number. H1N1 vaccine supply is increasing steadily. There’s not enough for all providers or people who would want it. And this understands to be frustrating. But the gap between supply and demand is closing. Last week, we had 16.1 million doses available. As of Friday morning, 5:00 a.m., for shipment. As of today, we have 26.6 million doses available for shipment. That’s an increase of 10.5 million doses in that seven-day period. With that vaccination, with that increase in vaccine availability, we're seeing more schools doing vaccine clinics. We’re seeing more health care workers getting vaccinated. More people at high-risk are being vaccinated.


Thomas Frieden: For laboratory confirmed? It’s an increase of 19. Laboratory confirmed, pediatric deaths one week to the next.

Reporter: When was the prior figure reported, last week?

Thomas Frieden: It’s a weekly report. Mike?

Mike Stobbe: Mike Stobbe from the AP, thanks, doctor. of the first with the pediatric deaths, that's the largest or one of the largest single-week jumps. can you explain what happened? is it the volume of disease in general? And then I wanted to ask about the swine flu vaccine doses. Do you know who is getting them? Has there been a breakdown? Is it mostly children?
