Yesterday I saw on the late TV news here in Scandinavia when they talked with a high health official from the EU meeting in Luxembourg , who said the reason that WHO has changed the level 5 & level 6 blocks and bundled them together - was because: (and this was his words, I heard them clearly)
"We are ALREADY! in a Pandemic, saying anything different would be to lie to the people."
I have some important and interesting news from my brother just now.
My brother works at Parliament House in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. He is NOT a politician, but I will not give anymore info than that.
He is worried, VERY worried and rang to tell me what has recently taken place at his work.
They have a room there, he calls it the 'war room' as a joke, and has only ever seen it used once in the 10+ years he's worked there. That one time was for the recent Black Friday bush fires, and then it was only a smallish gathering of politicians and officials.

Parker man recounts bout with H1N1 flu
PARKER — An airline baggage handler at Denver International Airport who had never heard of the swine flu, thought he had caught a cold after playing the slot machines in Central City on Saturday morning.
By Saturday night, he had a fever and terrible headache and was sweating, sick to his stomach and in pain every time he breathed.
"It was the worst flu I've ever had in my life," said the United Airlines employee, who didn't want this name used for privacy reasons. "It was rapid. The speed of it got me. It hit me so damn fast it wasn't even funny."

A group of largely unlicensed doctors and nurses at the United Nations are distributing controlled narcotics including Valium, Diazepam and Demerol, and in some cases they are self-medicating themselves with the drugs, according to a published report.
Serguei Oleinikov, deputy director of the U.N. Medical Service, recently approved the "disposal" of dozens of unexpired Valium tablets from the fifth-floor department within the United Nation's headquarters in midtown Manhattan, Inner City Press reports.
Ruth Martin Agwai, one of the unlicensed nurses reportedly connected to the scheme, is married to Martin Luther Agwai, a Nigerian general who is the commander of the United Nations-African Union peacekeeping force in Darfur. According to Inner City Press, Agwai has used the diplomatic pouch and privileges granted to her by the Nigerian Mission to the U.N. to take medical equipment overseas.

The government swears the situation is under control. But down at the hospital, medics scurry around behind the glass door of an isolation ward. They're clad from head to toe in biohazard suits, goggles and two pairs of gloves.
At the airport, officials set up a barrage of thermal imaging machines. If the picture flashes up red or orange, would-be passengers are whisked off to medical facilities.
The flu virus of 1918 was resurrected, reconstructed and brought back to life by the US Army Forces Institute of Pathology in Rockville, MD. under the direction of Dr. Jeffery Taubenberger in 1997. It was commissioned by the National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Diseases which performs biodefense reasearch. Attempts to recover the spanish flu virus date back to the 1950's.
I left something off my post........
They have been treating with Tamiflu.....
Many, I say many have returned to the ER sicker than when they have came in.
The hospital is working on seeing the effectiveness of Tamiflu........with concerns that it makes the "non" human strains more stronger against a weak immune system..
I have posted in several post that Tamiflu will not work against this strain......period!!
