WHO mulls raising swine flu alert level - 06-10-2009, 05:36 PM

The National Pandemic Emergency Committee is preparing to meet on Friday, as the World Health Organisation (WHO) has shown concern about the rapid spread of swine flu in Australia.

The WHO has pointed to the spike of swine flu cases in Australia as a key reason why it may finally announce the first flu pandemic in 41 years.

Australia has recorded 1,266 cases of swine flu, and WHO senior official Keiji Fukuda noted "a great deal of activity in Victoria at the community level".

Victoria is already in a modified sustain phase and is no longer testing every person who displays symptoms of swine flu.

There are 1,011 confirmed swine flu cases in Victoria, 101 in NSW, 71 in Queensland, 29 in Western Australia, 17 each in South Australia and the ACT, 13 in Tasmania and seven in the Northern Territory.

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said Australia has been the best prepared country in the world to deal with the threat of swine flu.
