The Swine Flu Dashboard tracks the daily progression of the H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu) virus on both a country-by-country and U.S. state-by-state basis. This public dashboard tracks both laboratory-confirmed cases and deaths resulting from the virus. The Swine Flu Dashboard contains four graphical indicators, each focused on a different aspect of the virus:

Total laboratory-confirmed cases and deaths on a country-by-country basis.

Total laboratory-confirmed and probable cases and deaths on a state-by-state basis within the U.S.

Cumulative global laboratory-confirmed cases on a day-by-day basis, broken out by country.

Overall composition of the different types of flu’s tested within the United States

The Swine Flu Dashboard helps highlight surprising trends and statistics associated with the Swine Flu virus that might otherwise go undetected, such as:

While the virus originated in Mexico, and Mexico has been the media focus to date, as of May 19, the United States has reported over 5,000 laboratory-confirmed cases, the most of any country.

Surprisingly, as of May 19, Illinois has reported the most laboratory-confirmed cases of any U.S. state. Wisconsin is second, and Texas third.

“This new Swine Flu Dashboard will help the general public understand how this Swine Flu virus is progressing on a day-by-day, country-by-country and state-by-state basis,” said Amit Mazumdar, CEO of VisualCalc. “The dashboard’s easy-to-understand graphs give users a quick, informative view into the current status of the virus, helping to alleviate concerns and maintain perspective. For example, the latest data from the CDC shows that less than one third of the flu cases tested in the U.S. are the Swine Flu virus.”
