Just when the global threat of swine flu seems to be dying out, the World Health Organization (WHO) has come out with some startling predictions of the threat.
Also known as H1N1, the WHO predict that there will be an explosion of swine flu cases worldwide in the coming months with as many as 2 billion people becoming infected over the next two years. So far the percentage of people dying due to swine flu is low, but even if 1% of infected people died due to the H1N1; that is 1% out of 2 billion people!
I don’t know if the WHO is just trying to scare governments into preparing for the worst (I hope they are not but in a way, I also hope they are) but if this is the predictions of experts, then governments throughout the world need to step up measures to find a cure for H1N1. All the talk of measures to combat swine flu is good and fine but it’s not of much help if there is no cure to the disease!
I hope the experts at the WHO don’t take this the wrong way but I am hoping that they are totally and absolutely wrong here.
