The WHO hasn't declared the H1N1 virus a pandemic yet, but will in the next upcoming days.

Apparently it depends on what happens in Victoria Australia. That's what I read in the newspaper this morning. They said if anyone else gets it then it might go to pandemic. Which is stupid because the normal flu kills the same amount of people as the swine flu.
I can't believe the hype over this flu it's not even that bad. According to people I know they have said they have had "paper cuts worst then this flu"

There will be a announcment today.
I expect WHO to announce phase 6 with some changes.
You will have to go to your locale,state and country sites to see the changes in travel etc...I see no reason to change travel at this point in the game.
Most of this will have to do with getting funds released to help countires moniter and maintain economics and health care supplies.
Quote:WHO says its pandemic announcement would not mean the situation was worsening, since no mutations have been detected in the virus to show it is getting more deadly.
In Edinburgh, Sturgeon told lawmakers that a WHO announcement means countries should immediately activate their pandemic plans.
"A move to level 6 is not a verdict on the severity of the virus," she said. "It simply means that the extent of global spread now fulfills the definition of a pandemic."
It would be the first flu pandemic in 41 years, since the Hong Kong flu of 1968.
You can listen live(WHO) or wait for the annoument via radio or TV.
