LEVEL 5 ~PANDEMIC~ Level Will be Raised by WHO

According to a report the WHO plans to increase to level 5 very shortly. Additionally, scroll down to the post under this one as 2 people who died in California are suspected of dying from Swine Flu,(UPDATE~ one of the deaths has now been ruled out as having swine flu LINK, no word on the 2nd death yet) California has declared a State of Emergency. Definition of Level 5 is below, followed by report:
Phase 5: The same identified virus has caused sustained community-level outbreaks in two or more countries in one WHO region. A pandemic is officially under way.

Considering the rapidly increasing number of confirmed swine flu cases, WHO officials have decided to raise the pandemic alert level to phase 5.

Swine Influenza (swine flu) caused by type A influenza, regularly leads to influenza outbreaks among pigs. The virus does not normally infect humans.

Confirmed sufferers in the United States and Mexico, however, are believed to have spread the disease to their families and others in close contact.

The alert level was increased to 4 on Monday, and WHO officials now say they will be forced to declare a phase 5 alert soon.
"We're still awaiting for a final confirmation from the US authorities, but it appears that there's a number of cases in New York which appear to be human-to-human transmission," WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl told a news briefing.

The United Nations agency also raised its alert level to 4 on Monday as the virus was detected in several European countries.

Mexican authorities say the new strain has killed up to 149 people in Mexico. About 64 confirmed cases have been reported in five US states. sourceUPDATED X2 Obama requests $1.5 Billion to fight Swine Flu HERE and information on possible vaccine being created HERE

Well looky here, it’s “Daniel” or is it now “Ben” the racist Zionist from Canada again. I’m so pleased you like my blog , Wow, 21 page views yesterday alone, thanks so much, I will take that as a complement:) You always amaze me, so brave, spewing racist crap all over the internet and hiding your profile, but that’s what your kind do because you are embarrassed, I can’t blame you for that. I’d be ashamed if I were you as well. As you cannot engage in proper dialogue, or write anything useful other than racist rants, future comments will no longer be posted, perhaps you should take up a hobby, maybe flower arranging.
