Interactive World Map of Swine Flu Cases

Posted: Updated:

The New York Times has created a web page allowing users to track the swine flu around the world, a tool that became more relevant Wednesday after the first U.S. death from the disease.

A 23-month-old child in Texas was the first swine flu related death outside of Mexico as well.  The new development changes the the outlook of the disease and creates more of an interest in where there are confirmed cases.

The map on NYTimes.com provides the number of cases that are both confirmed as well as suspected.

It also reiterates the lack of a presence in the country's northwest region where there are no cases reported in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.  There have been cases up north in Canada, however, in British Columbia and Alberta.
