The world is in a critical time now, the swine flu is spreading fast, the biggest impact is my loved country Mexico, reporting thousand of cases and more than 150 deceases. Other countries have been reported positive cases around the globe.
Many things isn't clear, are the numbers real?, when did exactly this started?, why is this virus so different?, why are the cases in Mexico lethals?
A good review of the situation is in the Germán's Blog, he is a graduate student of the UNAM in the faculty of biomedics. (My apologizes, it's is in Spanish and I don't want to translate).
By the moment, you can watch the spread with this Google Maps Mash-up:

Remember, the best prevention is the hygiene and medial attention as soon as you feel bad.
