WHO - Pandemic (H1N1) 2009 - update 88

The latest from WHO:

" 19 February 2010 -- As of 14 February 2010, worldwide more than 212 countries and overseas territories or communities have reported laboratory confirmed cases of pandemic influenza H1N1 2009, including at least 15921 deaths.

WHO is actively monitoring the progress of the pandemic through frequent consultations with the WHO Regional Offices and member states and through monitoring of multiple sources of information. "

If you read through the whole article from WHO, you will notice something which I have mentioned many times in my older posts which is the number of H1N1 is South East Asia is increasing and honestly I see not many people are reporting it or even interested in it.

I really hope and pray that the Malaysian Health Ministry and also all the health Ministries in the South East Asia region of countries are prepared for a new onslaught. All of us have our role to play in combatting H1N1, let us start before its too late.
