The World Health Organization and leading influenza research groups are investigating unpublished claims that the new H1N1 swine flu virus may have evolved in a laboratory, not in nature.
The Geneva-based agency was informed of the pending publication over the weekend by the author, a retired Australian virologist named Adrian Gibbs.
It scrambled to draw in researchers from leading human and animal influenza laboratories around the world in a bid to determine if the claim has merit and if it does, whether that changes the advice WHO gives member countries on the threat posed by the new H1N1 swine flu virus.

When all available resources are insufficient to meet the health care needs of beneficiaries in a public health emergency, the MHS shall use the limited resources to achieve the greatest good for the greatest number. Under these circumstances, "good" is defined as lives saved and suffering alleviated. In an environment of insufficient resources, MHS commanders shall not require expenditure of resources if treatment likely would prove futile or if a disproportionate amount of assets would be expended for one individual at the cost of many other lives that otherwise could be saved. MHS commanders are to ensure the most competent medical authority is available, at the lowest level of command possible, to make medical judgments of this nature.
