Tracking the Swine Flu

With the recent outbreak of this Swine Flu it'd be a good idea to see a visual of where the Swine Flu is spreading. So far at least 20 people in Mexico have died from the H1N1 Swine Flu.  In the U.S. there are confirmed cases of people that are infected with it, but nobody has yet died from it.

Here's a marker legend for the map below:

  • Pink markers are suspect

  • Purple markers are confirmed

  • Those markers with a dot represent the individual(s) are still alive

  • Yellow markers are negative

This map automatically updates to reflect upon any new cases of the Swine Flu.  Keep in mind - the pink markers are suspect, meaning the flu these people have is still being determined.  The purple markers without dots are those that have actually died from the H1N1 Swine Flu... THOSE markers are cause for concern.

Update: It looks like the death toll in Mexico has now surpassed 150 deaths.
