Tracking Swine Flu Cases

Want to keep track of the incidence of swine flu? Here are several ways:

The Google mashup map above (this one will be obsolete* by the time you see it; go here for updated version) shows reported incidences of swine flu. It was put together by niman, a biomedical researcher in Pittsburgh.

Pink markers are suspect. Purple markers are confirmed or probable. Deaths lack a dot in marker. Yellow markers are negative.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) provides an exact state-by-state swine flu index; as of April 27, 2009 1:00 PM ET, 40 cases were reported. 28 of those are in New York City.

Finally, here's the CDC's Twitter flu update link.

Outbreaks of swine flu have been identified in Mexico, the US and Europe, according to the WHO. It's nice to see the distinction between suspected and confirmed areas.
