A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words...

...or in this case, a map!

The Avian Influenza Daily Digest has posted two maps of avian influenza on Google Earth that are worth looking up:

1. An HPAI H5N1 Outbreak Map that allows you to see the global count and spread of all suspected and confirmed cases of HPAI H5N1 in the last 60 days.

2. An H5N1 in Humans Map that lets you see all cases of human infection with H5N1 confirmed by the World Health Organization for 2008.

These two maps are great tools to help visualize the recent spread of avian influenza in the world. We hope you will find it helpful!
