Swine flu - coming soon to a theater near you

Swine flu goes global, it is now spread in 2 regions of the world, spread in 74 countries so far, with a bit less than 28,000 cases recorded and 141 deaths.

WHO declares swine flu pandemic. The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared a global flu pandemic after holding an emergency meeting, according to reports

The measures for declaring a virus as pandemic are a bit inapplicable in the swine flu case, as 98 to 99% of cases recover without any need of hospitalization.

Cases of swine flu has been reported in Lebanon beginning of June, with 3 cases caught at the airport. More cases have been reported earlier this week. I will check more to know the exact number and what the ministry of health is doing about it.
