Article Assessment for WikiProject Medicine[edit]

Hello. I am a member of WikiProject Medicine, a Wikipedia wide project that maintains and improves articles that fall under the scope of medicine. Since your article has not fallen under our scope, I have placed the correct template(s) on this talk page. Leave a message on my talk page if you have any questions. Thanks, and keep editing Wikipedia! Renaissancee (talk) 16:38, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Per discussion at WP:MED itself, Renaissancee's decision is incorrect, and it is appropriate to tag this article. 70.29.212.226 (talk) 06:34, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Nicaragua[edit]

H1N1 Nicaragua Map.svg
H1N1 Nicaragua map by confirmed cases.svg

There's a Nicaragua map available File:H1N1 Nicaragua Map.svg... but we don't have a Nicaragua section...

70.29.208.129 (talk) 07:32, 2 June 2009 (UTC)


Then translate the Nicaraguan section from the Spanish Wikipedia, or maybe some one can do it :D.--Vrysxy! (talk) 00:34, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

First case reported in Nicaragua here is the reference in Spanish.--Vrysxy! (talk) 21:26, 2 June 2009 (UTC)


There's another Nicaragua map avilable - File:H1N1 Nicaragua map by confirmed cases.svg... but we don't have a section on Nicaragua... 70.29.212.226 (talk)

Two questions[edit]

Question one: All the islands of the Lesser Antilles are shaded as having confirmed cases. Yet, there doesn't seem to be any mention of any cases there other than in Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago. Is there a mistake here?

Question two: Suggestion, really. The map with Greenland shows many small regions. However, these appear to be obsolete as of January 1, 2009, according to Subdivisions of Greenland. I know nothing of editing the maps, so I thought I'd mention it in case someone who knows how can fix it.

--Patteroast (talk) 20:04, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

(Greenland) ... Oh, I thought it was still the way it was before. So they consolidated. The map that first needs to be updated is File:North America second level political division 2 and Greenland.svg. That map was made last year by User:CarolSpears, unfortunately, she appears to have been banned for incivil behaviour. There is a 4-country map available (US + Canada + Mexico + Greenland) File:North America - First level political divisions.svg that doesn't have divisions at all. I think you could ask User:Allstrak, s/he seems particularly competent with maps, and created the map used in the Subdivisions of Greenland article. 70.29.210.174 (talk) 06:45, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

El Salvador[edit]

H1N1 El Salvador Map.svg

There's a map of El Salvador available ( File:H1N1 El Salvador Map.svg ) ... but we don't have a section on El Salvador... 70.29.212.226 (talk) 08:58, 13 June 2009 (UTC)



Central America / Belize[edit]

Looks like the only Central American country without a map is Belize... 70.29.212.226 (talk) 09:11, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Maps of Honduras[edit]

There seems to be a disagreement at Spanish Wikipedia over which image to use, both the SVG and PNG images are used, and updated, out of sequence with one another... which should we use here? 70.29.212.226 (talk) 13:53, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

It's been settled, the SVG version will be used. 70.29.212.226 (talk) 08:59, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Deaths map[edit]

H1N1 map by confirmed deaths.svg

So can someone update the world deaths map to account for

  • the Dominican Republic  Done
  • Guatemala  Done

?

Can someone update the map for Honduras? 70.29.212.226 (talk) 07:34, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Zoonosis map[edit]

H1N1 Canada human swine flu - zoonosis - CSS map.svg

So, should we add the zoonosis map to the article? 70.29.212.226 (talk) 08:20, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Proposed article move[edit]

A proposal is afoot to move the 'country' article to a more appropriate location. Thoughts? Bosonic dressing (talk) 10:18, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Akimiski Island[edit]

H1N1 Canada Map by confirmed cases.svg

Someone needs to fix the confirmed cases map. Akimiski Island is coloured the same as Ontario, and should not be, it is part of Nunavut.

70.29.208.69 (talk) 06:35, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Anticosti Island[edit]

Canada swine flu map.svg

Someone needs to fix the suspected/confirmed/deaths map. It was fixed once before, and then undone. Anticosti Island is part of Quebec, but it is not coloured to match.

70.29.208.69 (talk) 06:35, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Akimiski Island[edit]

H1N1 North America Map.svg

Akimiski Island is the wrong colour, it should be the same as Nunavut, instead it's the same as Quebec.

70.29.208.69 (talk) 21:57, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

But they are both the same color, so it is not an issue.John Pack Lambert 00:13, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Americas[edit]

Twho new maps have shown up... 76.66.192.64 (talk) 10:56, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

North America Community Outbreaks.svg[edit]

The community outbreak map is missing Greenland, which is part of North America. Someone should add Greenland (in grey) onto the map Image:North America Community Outbreaks.svg

76.66.192.64 (talk) 08:09, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Rename article?[edit]

This article is horribly outdated and repetitive of the articles on the US, Canada, and Mexico. The hype around H1N1 has resulted in far more articles on the subject than people can maintain. Should this article be renamed "2009 Flu Pandemic in Central America and the Carribean" and the parts on the US, Canada, and Mexico removed? Or possibly these countries articles should be merged into this one. 66.183.132.33 (talk) 04:42, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
