CDC urges caution on estimates of swine flu
The New York Times, August 26, 2009
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggested that the President's Council of Advisers on Science and Technology H1N1 projections should be regarded with caution. A press officer for the disease centers, speaking carefully to avoid a feud with the White House press office, said, "Look, if the virus keeps behaving the way it is now, I don't think anyone here expects anything like 90,000 deaths." Even one of the experts who helped prepare the report said that the numbers were probably on the high side, given that some weeks had passed since the calculations were finished in early August.
