H1N1 - defusing the situation

A strange thing happened today.

Since the last press release that we had 40 cases, the tally has gone up by 9 (including a Biopolis worker possibly having infected colleagues there) to a grand total of 49, but the media has been deafeningly silent about the jump in infections.

Methinks there is a policy now to mute the public announcements. This is not necessarily a bad thing, because the previous hysteria was quite inappropriate.

So let's now get into dealing with this quietly and sensibly.
