H1N1 flu deaths detailed *

h1n1map.jpgThe students at USC's Neon Tommy looked into the Los Angeles County deaths attributed to the H1N1 flu and mapped the cases — 57 since April, when it was known as the swine flu. Included in Faces of a Health Crisis are stories on the victims, interviews with families and health officials, and a Google map of the cases. (I couldn't find the difference between green and red.)

* Noted: I neglected to mention that the students broke new ground by getting death certificates on dozens of swine flu victims.
