Well I disagree. A large part of the people who die due to the swine flu, die not per say due to the flu it self, but because their immune system or health is in some way compromised or lacking. That is just like most people who die of AIDS dont die of AIDS it self, but because their immune system is crap and simple things like the flu is deadly.
I know for a fact that in the UK and in Spain they list every week or so how many new cases that are reported (note the reported) and each time a person dies from the swine flu or because of complications due the swine flu and complications it is noted. For example, 3 people have died in the province of Spain I live in due to the swine flu.
While we never can be 100% exact, at least they are counting it. I understand counting how many have been effected is damn hard since far from everyone goes to the doctor since the effect of the swine flu is different from person to person, but deaths should be pretty simple to record. After all a doctor has to list cause of death and so on, on a death certificate.
And no it is not some US vs Europe thing.. I just find it hard to believe that the CDC cant get a clear picture of numbers of deaths.. number of sick sure, but deaths?
