As of 06:00 UTC / GMT, 11 countries have officially-confirmed cases of influenza 2009 H1N1.
|Country||# of known cases|
Also from WHO: "...There is also no risk of infection from this virus from consumption of well-cooked pork and pork products. Individuals are advised to wash hands thoroughly with soap and water on a regular basis and should seek medical attention if they develop any symptoms of influenza-like illness...."
I'm glad WHO is trying to make that clear. I'm concerned that more countries will follow Egypt's lead, killing pigs with no perceivable reason.
