The Flu Geek continues playing with the numbers...

Behind the cut for those squeamish, bored or uninterested...


Some comparative numbers:

May 5: 38 states, 403 cases

May 1:  19 states, 141 cases

April 28: 7 states, 64 cases

April 23: 2 states, 7 cases


NY and IL are fighting for first place with 90 and 83 cases each

Neat flu map from WHO:  http://whoterrance.vo.msecnd.net/mediacentre/swine_flu/GlobalSubnationalMaster_20090505_0800.jpg

According to the WHO:
