U.S. and British researchers have come up with new estimates on the severity of the H1N1 flu pandemic. Their projection at the low end places deaths at 1,500 to 2,700, intensive care admissions at 6,600 to 11,000 and hospitalizations at 36,000 to 78,000 for every 10% of the population that show flu symptoms. The high-end scenario could see 7,800 to 29,000 deaths, 40,000 to 140,000 intensive care admissions and 250,000 to 790,000 hospitalizations for every 10% of the population with flu symptoms, according to the estimate.
