Swine flu 'reaches 160 countries'

The swine flu virus has reached 160 countries and could infect two billion people within the next two years, the World Health Organization has said.

A senior WHO official, Keiji Fukuda, said the virus was still in its early stages and would continue to spread for some time.

Mr Fukuda said work on a vaccine was intensifying but safety could not be compromised by rushing the process.

The virus is thought to have killed almost 800 people in recent months.

Mr Fukuda, the WHO's Assistant Director General for Health Security, said the agency had been reporting only laboratory-confirmed cases, but that this was always going to be "only a subset of the total number of cases".

"Even if we have hundreds of thousands of cases or a few millions of cases, we're relatively early in the pandemic," he told the Associated Press news agency.

"One of the things that is relatively clear is that we will continue to see spread of the virus; even though we are now three to four months into the pandemic, this is still pretty early into the overall period," he said.

Mr Fukuda said the WHO estimates two billion people, one third of the global population, could eventually be infected.

He said the figure was a reasonable prediction, based on analysis of previous pandemics, but that it was "really impossible to predict what the future will hold".

Pregnancy risk


Mr Fukuda said officials and drug manufacturers were investigating how to speed up the process of developing a vaccine against the H1N1 swine flu strain.

But he said there could be no doubt over the safety and efficacy of the drug before it was publicly distributed.

"There is always a balance in this sort of situation. You of course want to get out vaccine and as much vaccine as possible, as quickly as possible. On the other hand there are certain things which cannot be compromised," he said.

"There are certain areas where you can make economies, perhaps, but certain areas where you simply do not try to make any economies."

The WHO says that in most affected countries, the majority of cases appear to be occurring in young people, around the ages of 12 to 17, although some reports suggest it is mainly older people who have required hospital treatment.

The organisation also said there was "accumulating evidence suggesting pregnant women are at higher risk of more severe disease".

But Mr Fukuda said the WHO "certainly has no recommendations on whether women should try to have children now".

That was the point I was trying to make - FYI, Baxter is a charismatic Pentacostal preacher who doesn't even believe in the Trinity. This is NOT the first time he's made these fearmongering "prophecies".

I was trying to point out this FEARMONGERING he had late in 2007...the 2 billion people dying he "got a vision from God" would happen in the near future. Especially considering all these news reports how 2b people could die in this current swine flu, I came to a conclusion that this man is CointelPro.

Funny how he spent most of the time asking for money.

I find it comical the numbers that are getting thrown around 2 billion, then here in the UK it was something like 100,000 will get infected every week or month i can't remember, but my dad had flu like symptoms (which they were telling you to look out for and get medical help asap). He didn't go to the doctor and was sick for 2 days and that was it he was fine after that and he is 71, obviously I don't know if it was swine flu because he didn't go to the doctors but there was flu like symptoms
