So after further fact checking, I realized I made a mistake about my AH1N1 information (and to respond to questions).
Here is the correct update:
- From May 17th to July 2nd there were 8,160 confirmed cases of AH1N1 registered by the Chilean Ministry of Health
- As of July 2nd, there were 16 confirmed deaths from AH1N1
However, despite AH1N1, the winter here is beautiful and on clear days, you can see the Andes Mountains from the university. Below, I attached a photo of the PI, Dr Lilian Ferrer (R) and the research coordinator, Lisette Irarrazabal(L).
