Track the Swine Flu Outbreaks on Google Maps

Want to track the swine flu outbreaks on your desktop?  A chap named “niman” has created a nifty Google Map of all the swine flu activity…ON EARTH!


View H1N1 Swine Flu in a larger map

Key:

  • Pink markers are suspect
  • Purple markers are confirmed
  • Deaths lack a dot in marker
  • Yellow markers are negative

If you go to the full map page (link below) it gives an itemized list of those who have come down with the disease.  We can’t make any claims to the validity of this information, but it looks like the person updating it has been digesting headlines, so it’s probably as accurate as something like this needs to be.

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! My daughter moved to Tecate about 3 weeks ago, and I've been going crazy trying to find out if she is anywhere near the outbreaks. For some reason, she is not replying to my emails to check if she's OK. Probably because she's fine, as I can see from your maps. YOU ROCK!! I <3 GEEKS!!

    as the mother of one….

    S.P.

  5. I'm booking my ticket to Vegas now, so I'm there when Randall Flagg shows up.

    Needs to get in quick so I don't end up on the cleanup crew.

  7. Oh noes!! I live in Oregon and I'm inside the jaws of the beast!!

    They might shutdown school if this breaks out into a big enough problem. Don't want the CDC involved though.

    People can get so hysterical when things are over exaggerated. This does give me a few ideas however…
