swine flu map

This BBC map is quite fascinating. You can slide it to see where the swine flu spreads each day. From what I hear in the teachers' room at school, there are a ton of cases in Taiwan now and one in Fong Yuan. But I haven't actually read anything to confirm this. On the map I'm not sure if they combine Taiwan's numbers in with China. Taiwan hasn't been allowed at WHO meetings so I guess sometimes stuff doesn't get accurately reported but now I guess they are allowed as "Chinese Taipei". I'm no expert on this subject- my point is just that if the map doesn't show cases for Taiwan, it doesn't necessarily mean there aren't any.
