Its also believed their illnesses are unrelated. Based on available lab tests its likely Palau is experiencing a seasonal outbreak of the flu. Additional testing to determine the characterization of the influenza virus circulating in Palau will be done at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.
