Is this the right time to declare H1N1 flu pandemic?

The WHO(World Health Organization) is trying to decide if it is right to declare that H1N1 flu is pandemic. If they do so, this will be the first declaration in more than 40 years. But they still want to see if countries around the world can handle this so that people won’t panic.

In the phases of the flu, from the WHO 6-phases, it is now in its 5th phase. Because of the spread of a new strain in Australia and North America, they might declare that the virus is in its 6th phase—triggering a full blown pandemic declaration.

With today’s cases, I think people should wait as to when to panic. But this doesn’t mean that we should relax. I guess a little prevention cannot harm anyone. Prevention is really much better than cure.

Let’s just cross our fingers and hope for a better news.
