If the WHO goes to a level six Pandemic alert, what does this mean exactly?

I have the BBC News on and they were just explaining the different levels, but for level 6 it was quite vague. They just said level 6 would mean global pandemic and all the powers and resources have will be mobilised, or something to that effect.

But what exactly does that mean? Does that just mean this gives them carte blanche to do whatever they want in order to combat this flu?

It will give some nations the motive to go all out, but not every country is going to do that.

Its really up to each nation to decide how to use the WHO alert.

On BBC news the presenter is speaking to some talking head, some historian in medicine or something. But the presenter just asked, what does pandemic mean, how serious is it? Does it mean people will die? Then they were almost smiling! It isn't funny! Stop smiling!

Level 6 means that it's killing people in multiple countries and the infection is still spreading.

If the cases in the US start turning fatal then they will raise the level.

They are looking at human to human in Sacramento California

3rd NorCal Student Among 13 Calif. Swine Flu Cases
Skip a few then this,,,,,
A boy among those who fell ill may have contracted the illness from a student who returned from a Cancun vacation a week ago, said Kevin Eckery, a spokesman for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sacramento.

whole article here but isn't much being let out yet.
cbs5.com...

One of the three infected went to Cancun the others didn't! Get ready for level 5

P.s to add
The cbs5 link is for here in Northern California they cover news from the bay area all the way to Sacramento. They are a really good hard hitting news station and if something needs to come out it will be from them here in California.

Check points, mass quarantine, restriction of travel and movement, lock downs, state of emergencies. Sodom and Gomorrah, Four Horsemen, the Antichrist, Hell-fire the lot.

I understand that, my point being, when were confirmed infections broadcast? because I want to know if this strain is killing very quickly on second generation contact?

I have doubts untill more than sky issue the broadcast.

From what I've read the two men were reported dead on Monday (yesterday) and they've been trying to determine if the flu was the cause since then.

I'm in Los Angeles myself and I've been wondering why it has hit above and below us but not here yet. So many travel back and forth from Mexico to L.A. that I expect to hear of cases soon. They don't seem to be closing the borders to contain it.

AJ show talking about a take over exercise of some kind May 1st-2nd. Will try to find out more about this. Could be completely unrelated to this issue however.

If it really is a ATS style conspiracy I would pick 1 May as X-day.

Personally I don't think its that. Its something but probably not that.

They are doing the tests now on the two men in Los Angeles they haven't come back yet. I found this in the article. It is confirmed that there is human to human transmission.

Los Angeles Officials Probe Two Possible Swine Flu Deaths

The World Heath Organization has now confirmed person-to-person transmission of the swine flu virus in the United States.

The WHO said some students in New York City infected with swine flu had not traveled to Mexico and must have contracted the disease from classmates who had recently returned from a trip to the country.

The guy doing the CDC briefing now, just said people might question some actions taken by us in the community and ask is that right?

What is that supposed to mean? Or am i reading too much into what he is saying?

Important People follow Self Home Quarantine... if sick don't go to work or to school, get rest of family to stay at home as well.....

Different actions in different communities.....Tailored response...

The Label of what we call this is less important than what we do....

So the CDC are now saying that there are five hospitalized cases in the US. Between Texas and California.

They are expecting more.

Still no deaths in the US, but two deaths in California are being investigated for possible Swine Flu.

I'm still not overly worried, I will be when we start to have deaths in the UK confirmed as a result of this virus. But until then I'll hold off on buying face masks and alcohol hand wash.

I work at a large university in the midwest of the U.S. and we just received an email from our Provost regarding the swine flu. This part of the email stuck out to me...




Influenza is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing of infected people.


So my uni is backhandedly saying this is spread person to person.
We have a fairly large medical campus and some top notch public health researchers so it is possible that they have access to some info that the general public is not yet privy to.
Take it for what it's worth.

Obs out
