Swine flu and the more important health and safety story – sexual violence – by the numbers

Great application of the news-is-what-matters "how many people does this effect and how much" analysis to the media's top health story for 2009.

In watching the rapid mobilization against this virus I know that the public health infrastructure works when our government, our media, and our medical leaders are motivated to mobilize it. H1N1 is not getting any attention it shouldn’t – it’s getting the attention all public health crises should.
