WHO raises swine flu alert to phase 5

Comment

She should know. She and Prof. Shortridge stopped the pandemic happening when she was director of health in 1997 of Hong Kong. She will have not atken this step lightly and weighed it up against here vast experience of stopping a previous probable pandemic. Her rapid decision then to adopt Prof. Shortridge's strategy probably saved millions of lives. Overall Margaret Chan is the best person in the world to head up the WHO and we should take great notice of what she says for the good of all.
