H3 Case In Maryland?
The above comments represent another anecdotal report on flu-like cases in the Washington DC area. The above fatal case (33F) was said to be at the Baltimore Washington Medical Center, just south of Baltimore, and was in response to comments on the Calvert County cluster, which has been H3 confirmed.
Although these comments are unconfirmed, the earlier description of the Calvert cluster coughing up blood was confirmed by subsequent media reports.
Although an earlier press release denies additional similar clusters, the above description appears to be a single case that was not part of a reported cluster.
More information on suspect cases in the Washington DC area would be useful, as would sequence information and more detail on the H3N2 low reactors described in the week 8 FluView.
