Mixed Messages; I’m Still Uneasy

Along with announcing new confirmed cases of swine flu, the WHO also added that there does not seem to be any sign on sustained global spread of the disease.  (This is a little bit of a letdown for me, the way they had been building it up and such but oh well.)  But the director of the WHO, Michael Ryan also says, “At the present time, I would still propose that a pandemic is imminent because we are seeing transmission to other countries..We have to expect that Phase 6 will be reached. We have to hope that it is not.”

It is important to remember that Phase 6 is not a code-word for THE INFECTED ARE EVERYWHERE HIDE IN YOUR HOMES! but instead, the geographic phase of a disease, which can be mild, medium, or severe.
