Swine flu in the New York Times

Like me, you are probably hearing conflicting opinions about how serious this swine flu epidemic is. One of the guys at the club this morning said he thought it was a made-for-TV crisis. On the other hand, the World Health Organization said it has spread beyond containment and our best hope is that it burns itself out before it develops into a full-blown pandemic. The fact is that nobody knows what will come of it. In the meantime, I suggest we keep a close eye on it. This chart from the New York Time will help.
