Follow the link for a Google Map showing real time(?) swine flu diagnoses, deaths and false alarms.

The legend:

Pink markers are suspect
Purple markers are confirmed
Deaths lack a dot in marker
Yellow markers are negative

I’m not certain of the data source – World Health Organization or Centers for Disease Control.
