1. (U) SUMMARY: The net number of confirmed H1N1 infections
in
Germany rose by 681 cases to 17,265 cases on September 8. END
SUMMARY.


2. (U) At its September 8 press briefing, the National
Reference Center for Influenza at the Robert Koch Institute
(RKI) confirmed a total of 698 new (laboratory and non-
laboratory) H1N1 cases in Germany over Thursday, September 3,
and subtracted 17 previously confirmed cases. This net
increase of 681 cases brings the total to 17,265. Seventeen

New cases were distributed among fifteen federal states as
follows: Hesse (-17),Baden-Wuerttemberg (224),Bavaria (157),
Lower-Saxony (54),North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) (44),

Schleswig-
Holstein (33),Saxony-Anhalt (28),Hamburg (16),Saarland
(12),Thuringia (8),Saxony (7),Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (5)
and Bremen (2). New cases include non-laboratory H1N1 cases
that exhibited symptoms after being in contact with a
laboratory-confirmed infected person.


4. (U) NRW remains the German state with the highest number
of confirmed virus cases with a total of 5,238, followed by
Baden-Wuerttemberg (2,648 cases) and Lower-Saxony (2,531).
The number of all confirmed infections in Germany that have
resulted from domestic transmission increased to 26 percent.
To date, there have been no reported deaths in Germany due to
H1N1.
