WHO urges international community to prepare for new swine flu wave
Beijing (China)- The World Health Organization (WHO) has urged on Friday the international community to prepare for a likely second wave of swine flu. "We can not say for certain whether the worst is over or the worst is yet to come," said WHO Head Margaret Chan in a videotaped address at the opening of the three-day meeting on flu in the Asia-Pacific region. "We need to prepare for whatever surprises this capricious new virus delivers next (...) constant random mutation is the survival mechanism of the microbial world," she said.
