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.

    the spread of AH1N1 or Swine Flu is really scary. It is a good thing that this virus is not very deadly. We are advised to take Vitamin-C and to wear face masks.

    the use of face masks and boosting your immune system by taking lots of vitamin-C is still an effective way of preventing the spread of the Swine Flu virus.

    the H1N1 or Swine Flu Virus is very scary at first but now it is well controlled by vaccines and prevention by avoiding going into places with incidence of swine flu.

    If you look at the pandemic of 1977, when H1N1 or Swine Flu re-emerged after a 20 year absence, there is no shift in age-related mortality pattern. The 1977 “pandemic” is, of course, not considered a true pandemic by experts today, for reasons that are not entierely consistent. It certainly was an antigenic shift and not an antigenic drift. As far as I have been able to follow the current events, the most significant factor seems to have been that most people, who were severely affected, were people with other medical conditions.

    i think that in asian countries the Swine Flu did not spread rapidly compared to those countries that are located in colder climates. we should still be very thankful that the swine flu did not cause massive infections.

    In the awesome scheme of things you actually get an A for hard work. Where exactly you actually lost everybody was first in all the details. You know, they say, the devil is in the details… And that couldn’t be more accurate at this point. Having said that, allow me reveal to you just what did give good results. The authoring can be really convincing and this is probably why I am making the effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, although I can certainly notice a jumps in logic you make, I am definitely not confident of exactly how you appear to connect the ideas which help to make the actual final result. For now I will, no doubt subscribe to your point however trust in the foreseeable future you connect your dots much better.
