World Health Organization Believes Flu Ready To Explode Across The Planet

The WHO went to a level five alert today, it’s second highest, over this H1N1 flu outbreak in the belief the virus is ready to sweep around the globe. Reports of infected people are now coming in from many countries but as of 4:30pm 29 April there has been only one death attributed to the virus in the U.S. and that was a toddler who came across the border from Mexico into Texas.

In keeping with administration policy of not allowing a crisis to go to waste it has been rumored that Robert “Mr. Family Guy” Gibbs, the painfully stupid White House spokesman, and five foot nothing Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s “right hand man” are presently concocting a story that will somehow place the blame for this potential worldwide flu pandemic squarely in the laps of George W. Bush and Dick “Shotgun” Cheney.

The World Health Organization has raised its pandemic alert for swine flu to the second highest level, meaning that it believes a global outbreak of the disease is imminent.

WHO says the phase 5 alert means there is sustained human to human spread in at least two countries. It also signals that efforts to produce a vaccine will be ramped up.

WHO has confirmed human cases of swine flu in Mexico, the United States, Canada, Britain, Israel, New Zealand and Spain. Mexico and the U.S. have reported deaths.

WHO Director-General Margaret Chan made the decision Wednesday to raise the alert level from phase 4 — signifying transmission in only one country — after reviewing the latest scientific evidence on the outbreak.
