WHO moves to level 5
the new york times' tracker map and their full coverage page.
UPDATE: this twitter from veratect:
US: CDC's Influenza Division Director states clinical presentation of swine influenza in the US "is looking a bit more" like that in Mexico.
so far in the united states the swine flu, while proving highly contagious, simply hasn't presented with anything like the severity of what was implies from early returns in mexico. i suspect this is a data quality problem -- chances are, many more people were infected in mexico than originally expected, wildly inflating the mortality rate.
