Swine Flu (A) H1N1 in the United States and the World Today

Still planning that U.S. vacation? Where do you want to go? In what U.S. state will you be staying?

You might want to study this map first.....

And if you're planning to skip that US vacation, what about the rest of the world?
Swine flu has been confirmed in more than 9,830 people in at least 40 countries, with most of the cases in Mexico and the U.S. The global death toll was at least 82 --- 74 in Mexico, six in the U.S., one in Canada and one in Costa Rica. ~ AP, 20 May 2009

It will not be a surprise if more than 10,000 cases will be reported tomorrow. Although it seems that swine flu's case fatality rate is relatively low compared to the other infectious diseases, the way it spreads still confirms it is very contagious. Imagine cases increasing by almost a thousand every day.

Best option?

Stay home. The Philippines remains free of swine flu.
