No Variation…Yet…

A leading federal health official said today that so far they have not seen genetic variations from swine flu samples taken across the world.  A shift in the genetic makeup of the virus could be an indicator that the virus is adapting itself to humans, and could signal a more virulent and deadly strain ahead.

The WHO is also considering adding another measure that indicates the severity of the swine flu, rather than only the spread of the virus…”after several countries expressed concerns that declaring a global pandemic could cause mass confusion and panic even though it’s still not clear how dangerous the virus will be.”
