I learned this morning that the swine flu is not the same as the JE virus outbreak that happened in Malaysia a few years ago. The JE virus originated from pig farms too but it's a different type of virus. Swine flu is flu - fever, coughm sore throat. JE virus caused brain damage and possible paralysis.
Anyway, I found this Google Map Mashup that tracks the spread of swine flu. It's pretty wide. Very worrying. I pray that it doesn't come to Asia - Asia has so many people (China and India has billions in population) and our healthcare/screening are not as sophisticated. If it ever happens here, the spread of the virus would be unprecedented.
Thank goodness Asians don't go Mexico for vacation... Use the "+" and "-" sign at the top left to zoom out and see the complete world map.
