Swine flu: the world in 11 weeks
豬流感:首十一周的全球情況


From late April 2009 onward, World Health Organization (WHO) has been updating regularly the global Swine Flu situation on a country level. This series of Map Library maps shows the dissemination of the virus on a week-by-week basis after re-organizing data from the WHO and other sources, obtained through the update files of Centre for Health Protection, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government. Week One refers to the one week period beginning 20 April 2009 whereas Week Eleven refers to the week beginning 29 June. WHO stopped the regular updating after 6 July. Two sets of figures are shown – cumulative numbers (total number of confirmed cases reported) and incidence (new cases per week). Rapid transmission of the Swine Flu virus continued to be shown even by the end of this observation period. Apparently, the epidemic does not seem to have slowed down!

由零九年四月下旬開始,世界衛生組織每隔數天更新一次全球情況,將確診數目上載網站。這一組(共十一幅)地圖數據源自世衛和香港政府衛生署衛生防護中心網頁,由四月二十日起的第一周至六月二十九日起的第十一周為止。世衛在七月六日以後停止更新資料。地圖表達兩組經過處理的各國統計數值,顯示每周的新確診個案(incidence)和累積(cumulative)個案。明顯地,病毒到了第十一周仍然活躍傳播,豬流感疫情未有緩減跡象。
