Although Influenza A seems to have fallen off the world news chart, the outbreak is still growing, although at a slow speed.  For an interesting look at the time series of the outbreak check out this map at the Who website (Flash player required). 

Click on the “View the Interactive map” link and you will see the most recent influenza outbreak map.  In the upper right hand corner is a button allowing you to see the number of cases and their spatial patterns by day back to April 26.  If you are concerned about the influenza in a location for which you intend to travel, this is a good way to see what has and is happening there. 

By the way, WHO does not recommend curtailling travel due to the Influenza A outbreak.  For more information, see their website
