Australia is more Infected with Swine Flu than the US

06.04.09 | Comment?

Today, Australia confirmed 876 cases of swine flu. That means they are more infected on a per capita basis as the US.

The US has a population of about 304M, and the CDC is reporting 11,054 cases. That's one case for every 27,500 people.

Australia on the other hand has only has about 21M, but they have 876 cases. That is one case for every 24,000 people.

So much for it only spreading in the Americas.

But Australia can take heart. Panama has one case for every 21,000.
