“The move to Phase 6, the highest level in WHO’s graduated scale of pandemic alerts, has been expected for weeks and in the opinion of many experts is overdue. By WHO’s definition, it means that the virus is showing “community-level transmission,” which means it is being passed from person to person without an easily traceable chain of infection, in two or more regions of the world.

WHO had been reluctant move the pandemic alert to its highest level because of fears that doing so would confuse the public and possibly trigger panic. Contributing to the reluctance has been evidence that the new H1N1 strain is far less virulent than most experts expected the next pandemic flu to be. It generally causes an infection that people can recover from at home without specific medical intervention.”
