Despite my strong suspicion that this whole thing is over hyped, noticing that most (if not all) places I've seen are just giving totals, rather than trends over time, I've gone ahead and set up a Swine Flu Dashboard giving charts over time on confirmed cases and deaths on a worldwide and US only basis. The data is taken from Wikipedia for the worldwide numbers (as the way the WHO website presented the data was more difficult to grab) and from the CDC for the US numbers. I got data from the last few days manually, but the charts are now set to update automatically on a daily basis.
I'll leave this going until either it becomes a pain for some reason, or the hype bubble pops and nobody cares any more.
Note: Yeah, yeah, H1N1. Whatever. Swine Flu.
