                    it would be interesting to see the same curve for USA.
                    Alas, I can't find the data from USA by onset dates.

                    Why ? Can't CDC produce them ?

                        The tendency of influenza A/H1N1 epidemic continues to decline: Cenavece

                        Last week, when entirely resumed school activities and employment in the country (except the states who returned yesterday), there was increased demand for medical care for respiratory infections. The tendency of influenza A/H1N1 epidemic continues to decline, said Miguel Angel Lezana, director of the National Center of Epidemiological Surveillance and Disease Control (Cenavece) of the Health Secretariat (SSA).

                        He said that the May 5 at the time, every day around 50 people attending health services with symptoms of influenza, which is almost normal levels for this time of year. This situation contrasts with that experienced in the country in the critical days of the epidemic, when 800 thousand were provided daily, he said.

                        In an interview, the official said that cases have been adding to the overall figure of people affected by the virus A/H1N1 -3 thousand-734 until yesterday to match weeks. People started with the symptoms of illness around April 26. Continues to this day as the peak of the epidemic, with the largest number of patients because of the new strain.

                        Although there are confirmed cases with onset of symptoms in recent days-the last is May 13, statistics show the effect of social distancing measures that were implemented from April 24 and more clearly between the 30 April and May 5. Lezana stressed that in this period could not yet speak more than stabilization of the epidemic, but later, once spent the maximum period of incubation of the virus (five days), began to observe the decrease in the number of people with respiratory infections.

                        The director of Cenavece also referred to the apparently sudden increase of cases of influenza A/H1N1 in Jalisco. He explained that was because last Friday came the results of analysis of samples in the National Health Laboratory in Winnipeg, Canada. In this batch of 200 thousand samples were sent to Jalisco, for people who had infection around April 26.

                        To speed up the clinical process to determine the presence of A/H1N1 virus, the SSA requested the support of the Laboratory of Canada. Once he joined the national register of information from that country, the figure for Mexico increased from 40 cases of influenza A/H1N1 which took on Sunday, 84 reported on Monday.

                        In this regard, information from the Institute of Epidemiological Diagnosis and Reference (Indre) says the 200 thousand samples were sent to Canada for analysis, 15 came on Friday, 923 results, of which 283 were positive to the virus A/H1N1, while other 367 samples are still under observation in that country.

                        Therefore, the studies in the Indre, and those who came from Canada, between Saturday and Monday, 544 cases were added to the total, from 3 to 3 thousand 102 thousand 646, while that between Monday and Tuesday the increase was just 88 new confirmations of the virus.

                        The number of deaths rose from 68 to 70 between Saturday and Monday, Tuesday and were joined for 74 deaths.

                        Lezana explained that the number of students and teachers who have been sent to health centers for a "normal" respiratory infections at this time of year. He stated that approximately 100 thousand individuals who had not been allowed access to the campus is not significant in terms of epidemic influenza.

                                Currently there are "4541 confirmed cases of influenza A H1N1 in the country, of whom 83 died," explained the agency said in a statement.

                                The secretariat clarified that it is not death or infection, but recent cases that were already under study and have been diagnosed in the last few hours.

                                The epidemic in Mexico "continues its downward trend," he said.

                                In the last official report, last Friday, the record had been 80 deaths and 4094 infections.
