Hans Rosling on Swine Flu reporting

Great video posted on YouTube by my favorite stats man Hans Rosling. He decided to take a look at the recent occurrence, and subsequent coverage of, the swine flu compared to another disease Tuberculosis.
I wont quote all the figures in the video because it would ruin the video, but the one stat that I will quote is Deaths over the same 13 day period: (from swine flu = 31)(from tuberculosis = 63,066)
