Nice graphic from the beeb

Be afraid! Don't go outside! You're all going to die of swine flu. Or possibly develop some flu-like symptoms and then get better.

Yes, this swine flu is potentially serious, but this graphic from the beeb is ridiculous.

Red for confirmed cases, orange for suspected. Nice. Yesterday's supected case in the UK came back negative, but apparently a Canadian woman in Manchester might have flu (or swine flu, we can't be sure) so colour the UK orange. Start looking for a hypochondriac in Russia who 'suspects' they have swine flu and you can colour in a really big bit of the map.

Really expect better.
