GENEVA (Reuters) - The World Health Organization was poised on Thursday to declare that the new H1N1 virus has caused the first influenza pandemic in more than 40 years, health sources said on Thursday.

The move will trigger heightened health measures in the WHO's 193 member states as authorities brace for the worldwide spread of the virus that has so far caused mainly mild illness.

WHO Director-General Dr Margaret Chan was to hold a news conference on the outbreak at 1600 GMT.


So it seems to me that just because the headlines have revolved around little kimmy's acting out, that the pandemic has not died off or gone away.

It just was not in the headlines.

Also on a side note, everyones all worried about the swine flu, what about the bird flu?????
