The flu scoreboard

According to the WHO, Australia is now coming fifth in diagnosed H1N1 cases, behind the US, Mexico, Canada and Japan. We started off slow, but I reckon we can take ’em. Come on!

*cough*

Update (June 5th): we’ve knocked off Japan to take fourth place! As of update 43, the WHO has us at 501 vs. 385. We’re closing in on Canada as well (1530). Unfortunately, the WHO’s scoreboard lags behind reporting within Australia. According to the Health Minister of the Australian team, we’re up to 878. However, Mexico and the US seem to have the silver and gold in the bag, with impressive WHO scores of 5029 and 10053 respectively.
