Unless you've been living a tech-free existence for the past week, then you've probably been hearing a lot about the swine influenza A virus. The outbreak has already taken 149 lives in Mexico and more confirmed cases have been reported in other parts of the US. On Twitter, the topic is already receiving over 10,000 Tweets Per Hour as people micro-blog their concerns and questions about the disease. Wondering if the virus is going to become a full pandemic or if it's reaching your neck of the woods?

Lifehacker has revealed that there's a Google Mashup that tracks the flu worldwide. You can access the H1N1 Swine Flu map here and there's a legend to the left for what the color of markers mean.

Too many anonymous comments :( Anyway, I don't think this flu is a really really big deal, but hey, that map is cool! :P

Things are bad here in Mexico City but people are being as careful as we can be and the city is like a ghost town, I have to admit that I haven't left my house because of fear of getting infected. I think that the best thing people can do now is just take precaution and hit the hospital as soon as they get some kind of symptom. Another thing is not to panic, the disease is curable when detected early.
