Retweeted by Michael Batz@benjaminchapman It's an irony that higher rates might mean a better public health system, that's for sure.@benjaminchapman By "totally disagree" I mainly meant w/ the word "must." Something may very well be up, but not enough info to say.@benjaminchapman Also, see wide Campy variation across US sites: http://t.co/zgr3IzdWWH@benjaminchapman Higher reported rates of disease might actually reflect better reporting from hospitals, locals, etc.@benjaminchapman Main thing is that surveillance/reporting differences can easily explain geographic diffs (w/in Canada and w/ US).@benjaminchapman Totally disagree that "something must be up" w/ BC rate. Lots of explanations, mostly on surveillance side.
