Two weeks later and a three-fold increase in swine flu deaths in the United States. Compare the chart at right to the swine flu chart from just two weeks ago. Should you be worried? No. Should you educate yourself about swine flu and H1N1? Yes.

Europe’s first confirmed swine flu death – Sure, she was pregnant and had other health problems, but she’s dead from H1Ni. The good news? The baby does not have swine flu.

Swine flu widespread in England – Almost 1300 cases confirmed. When will the rest of Europe admit H1N1 has crossed the pond?

Swine flu becomes pandemic – It’s official, or at least it is if you look to the World Health Orginization (WHO) as a source of info. Swine flu is a global pandemic.

Boy Scouts not immune to swine flu – Reason #15 to avoid Jamborees.

CDC puts swine flu into perspective – Graphs, charts and soothing words make the pain go away

Current US swine flu cases

The table to the right displays current swine flu cases in the US by state.

For international human cases of swine flu infection
please visit the World Health Organization web site.

NOTE: Because of daily reporting deadlines, the state totals reported by CDC may not always be consistent with those reported by state health departments. If there is a discrepancy between these two counts, data from the state health departments should be used as the most accurate number. *Total includes the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico

First US Swine Flu Death

April 29th, 2009 No comments

Well, not really. Unless you count a sick baby from Mexico coming to the US for treatment as the “first US swine flu death.” I don’t mean to discount the tragedy of any swine flu deaths, but at the same time the swine flu fear mongering around this first swine flu death in the United States is inexcusable.

Let’s try to think of a good analogy… You live in Plainville. Somebody from Badville (500 miles away) has been dumping dead kittens in your town. The media starts reporting that your town isn’t safe for kittens. Right, it’s not the best swine flu analogy, but it’ll do.

What can you do to avoid swine flu and avoid being the second swine flu death in the US? Start by avoiding infected people. Don’t go to Mexico City. What about swine flu in Cabo and other parts of Mexico? No swine flu in Cabo yet. One reader tells us that’s because Cabo is a hot, drty desert. But maybe they’re stashing all of the swine flu vaccine there. You should investigate and report back! OR, just maybe, there aren’t any swine flu cases in Cabo San Lucas because it’s just not there. Who would go on vacation with swine flu symptoms anyhow?
