Swine flu tracked on Google Maps

Amazing to see how fast it can spread, especially since I'm due to travel to North America in a month from now... Then again... there's reports in Europe already, including Northern France, that's only a few hours driving from here.

But, let's all remember that the regular flu kills many, many thousands of people each year. So we shouldn't let the media (or WHO) hype about this one new strain paralyze us. There are multiple new strains every year. Take caution, but continue to enjoy the wonderful lives we have.
Have a great trip out this way, Hans.

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality. Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach. That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me? I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.” Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and that stubborn fog clouding my vision with nothing but darkness."

So, be prepared that many more school closings will likely take place. CDC recommends closings on first confirmed case or more than 2 suspected cases. Looking at the map and rate of spread you can see how likely more school/day care/day camp/etc closings are to happen. Prevention means washing hands and avoiding sick people. Family preparedness means figuring out what you'll do for child-care/time off work if necessary.
