I still have to fnish reading my copy of The Great Influenza: The story of the deadliest pandemic in history. I better hurry up reading that book but I can already see that with the recent outbreak of the H1N1 Swine Flu the world shows that it is a lot more prepared than during the Great Influenza. In Europe the advised not to travel to the United States or to Mexico. One doctor even mentioned that he would rather be critized for overreacting than underreacting. The map below has all the confirmed and suspected case of the H1N1 Swine Flu
