Swine Flu Information Resources
The current WHO pandemic alert level for the Swine Flu is 4, meaning the risk for a pandemic is greatly increased but not certain. Click on the image (left) for details. Hat tip to Daily Kos.
For resources, start with the CDC's resource pages covering influenza A (H1N1), a/k/a Swine Flu and move on to your state's department of health. See also the World Health Organization's alerts and WebMD's Swine Flu Guide. [JH]

Twitter is a good tool for Swine Flu information:
Swine flu: authoritative real-time information source
Veratect, a Seattle-based global health surveillance start-up that first identified the Swine Flu's emergence on April 6th, has emerged as an authoritative source of information on the outbreak. For a timeline of the outbreak, which reportedly began at an overcrowded pig farm in Veracruz, see this link. And for up-to-the-minute monitoring follow "Veratect" on Twitter ( www.twitter.com/veratect).
Given the dynamic nature of this situation, reliable information is an essential antidote for public anxiety. Let us hope that this outbreak stalls out, and that the web proves to be a source of information that forestalls baseless panic.
