Get all the cases, suspected and confirmed, in our up-to-date spreadsheet
• Swine flu cases where you live
The World Health Organisation has declared a swine flu pandemic, and the British government now expects the flu to hit 100,000 cases a day in August.
Well, we have been tracking swine flu, day by day and the best figures out there are below. We're listing every case, as it's reported, either by country health agencies or the mainstream press wires and reports.
The WHO is no longer updating its figures. Now it looks like the US CDC might be doing the same thing. But we will continue to get you the most reliable data we can, making this one of the few up-to-date swine flu sources on the web.
There are some caveats: not all of these cases have been confirmed as swine flu in the lab; the dates in the spread sheet are mostly the dates they have been reported in the media, not the dates reported to the medical authorities. We've also left off a lot of the suspected cases, just because we're not sure about the source. But as this progresses, we will try to do more with this and get more info - and any ideas, let us know.
The data here is being updated at a faster rate than the interactive graphic - so keep refreshing the page for latest figures.
We've cross-referenced these figures repeatedly - let us know if you would like to see anything else. Swivel has already started visualising our data, as has Visioko (although you need to download their app to see it. What can you do?
