Tracking Swine Flu's Spread

On April 28, we published an article called Tracking Swine Flu Cases, where we listed several ways of tracking the spread of the H1N1 epidemic, including the Google mashup map shown above. (Pink markers are suspect. Purple markers are confirmed or probable. )

We went back to Dr. Niman's map yesterday to see how many new cases there were since late April; here's the updated image.

As of Monday, May 18, there were 6095 suspected and confirmed cases in the U.S., with about 53 in Brooklyn. (This doesn't include the hundreds of kids staying home sick in Brooklyn and Queens with a variety of flu-related symptoms.)
