Stages of a Pandemic The World Health Organization (WHO) has developed a global influenza preparedness plan, which defines the stages of a pandemic, outlines the role of WHO, and makes recommendations for national measures before and during a pandemic. The phases are: Interpandemic period Phase 1 : No new influenza virus subtypes have been detected in humans. An influenza virus subtype that has caused human infection may be present in animals. If present in animals, the risk of human infection or disease is considered to be low. Phase 2: No new influenza virus subtypes have been detected in humans. However, a circulating animal influenza virus subtype poses a substantial risk of human disease. Pandemic alert period Phase 3: Human infection(s) with a new subtype but no human-to-human spread, or at most rare instances of spread to a close contact. Phase 4: Small cluster(s) with limited human-to-human transmission but spread is highly localized, suggesting that the virus is not well adapted to humans. Phase 5: Larger cluster(s) but human-to-human spread still localized, suggesting that the virus is becoming increasingly better adapted to humans but may not yet be fully transmissible (substantial pandemic risk). Pandemic period Phase 6: Pandemic: increased and sustained transmission in general population. Notes: The distinction between phases 1 and 2 is based on the risk of human infection or disease resulting from circulating strains in animals. The distinction is based on various factors and their relative importance according to current scientific knowledge. Factors may include pathogenicity in animals and humans, occurrence in domesticated animals and livestock or only in wildlife, whether the virus is enzootic or epizootic, geographically localized or widespread, and other scientific parameters. The distinction among phases 3, 4, and 5 is based on an assessment of the risk of a pandemic. Various factors and their relative importance according to current scientific knowledge may be considered. Factors may include rate of transmission, geographical location and spread, severity of illness, presence of genes from human strains (if derived from an animal strain), and other scientific parameters.

Could you explain level6
POTUS himself passed an executive order on March 16, of 2012 basically initiating silent martial law. This order came as a follow up to keep the nation in a constant state of martial law as the currently imposed extension to Pandemic Level 6 martial law expired earlier this month. Pandemic Level 6 martial law was extended by the POTUS after the Swine Flu Pandemic of 2009, later the following year. We are essentially in an everlasting state of silent martial law that has been contrived by the powers that be.
The US National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity made the unprecedented decision last month to call for the censorship of a pair of papers in scientific journals that describe how to make a novel, human transmissible form of bird flu that could kill unprecedented numbers of people.

The US news articles states this strain has been around since September 2010, has killed few people and although passed between animals, hasn't passed as well to humans (and they don't know why).

though Ive been wrong a few times.

provide a source for the CDC saying this thing is weaponized?
"According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the new H3N2v Virus has struck in 5 states in the CONUS (Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Pennsylvania and West Virginia), and contains a mutation variant of the 2009 H1N1 “Swine Flu” signaling the possibility of weaponization."

H3N2v is the variant strain G.E. to jump from human to human readily rendering it highly *INFECTIOUS* and lethal.
No one has died from the strain at this time.
