Initial swine flu forecasts are “suspect”

The first official forecast that the global swine flu pandemic, expected to return to the USA this fall,  could lead to two million people hospitalized and between 30,000 and 90,000 deaths are “suspect” and contribute to a “climate of scaremongering and shaky science,” claims Al Ozonoff.  He is a School of Public Health associate professor of biostatistics who has researched real-time survillance systems for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
