Several interactive/multimedia/real-time swine flu tracking pages have popped up in the recent days. Please weigh in on what you like/dislike about the ones mentioned below. Or, add a comment to suggest a different site you think is better than them all:
The press: The New York Times created a multimedia map that gets updated regularly and has a text log next to it.
The government: The CDC website keeps a scorecard and also offers steps to keep yourself safe, background info, tips for professionals, and more.
The Google: They use their mapping feature to show confirmed/suspected cases with source attributions and links to original language sources, translations, report date, and current known statuses.
A Vaccine For Swine AND Bird Flu?
For our part, we’d like to point folks to a January 2008 story we did called "Universal Flu Vaccine." Ongoing research at the NIH offers the tantalizing prospect of one flu shot that lasts a lifetime. They say such a universal vaccine could even protect against strains of flu that haven’t happened yet. Watch the video here.
