18. This is a The MKX® original. Using data from the World Health Organization I put together a little Google Docs spreadsheet with all the confirmed cases of A(H1N1) influenza infection. Interesting to see the trends. Feel free to link to this post to share. To see the latest version of the spreadsheet, click here.
I received an email forward saying that the whole swine flu scare is a conspiracy theory by the Mexican government. This pissed me off: misinformation can be deadly in this case. Readers in Mexico and elsewhere: follow all indications and don’t spread this junk. Bill Gates and AOL paying you millions for forwarding an email is harmless enough, but this isn’t. Use common sense.
