Swine Flu update as of 6 PM Eastern

Cases detected in New York City and in Kansas.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization is “Concerned” and they have stated that this is “a public health emergency of international concern.” - but they won’t raise the pandemic threat level. Currently it is at Level 3, it SHOULD be at Level 5. They won’t raise it.

Level 4 is “significant spread with a novel flu virus.” HELLO?!?!? Look at the reports!

CDC says they’ll do what they need to do regardless of what WHO says the threat level is. (How about close the freakin’ border? - SteveC)
