A month back, I wrote about Google maps influenza tracker following the H1N1 Swine Flu and its course across the world. With the continual focus on the spread of this virus, it was refreshing tonight to hear that Canada is treating the spread of the disease like it would any other seasonal flu outbreak, choosing to ignore the hoopla about the virus having crossed the primate barrier from pigs to humans. Maybe the Canadian’s know something we don’t, because they’ve decided to go the other direction and give their pigs the flu instead, as reported by CNN Health, with a farmer passing the flu to his heard of pigs. Cop that!
Rhizalabs has taken over the Google Maps official H1N1 Swine Flu tracker, with a more detailed and comprehensive breakdown of the location and stages of the virus.
