Am I reading this wrong, or is the ticker at the bottom of this map reading 5 dead in Canada and 1 in Costa Rica?
Health officials are testing samples from more than 150 Iowans for signs of the swine flu virus.
A handful of cases are from the Polk County area, including an adult who either visited Mexico or was close to someone who did, health officials said. The person was not hospitalized but was given anti-viral drugs.
Two probable cases of swine flu have cropped up in southeast Iowa, and more are expected, state leaders said today.
“We anticipate it will spread across Iowa,” said Tom Newton, director of the state Department of Public Health.

Ugh is it just me, or is it depressing refreshing this page and seeing 4 more posts every time with the infected count going up every post?
I can assure you that when I go outside or spend time doing something other than reading these posts, I feel much happier.
Not to belittle the constant flow of data and organization that is going on here, but a word of advice: Don't dwell on this or worry about getting sick. Get out once in a while and just eat healthy. I know that if I was on here all day, I would get depressed. It's much nicer outside where the sun shines.
