                          WHO updates, in regards to numbers, at this point mean very little and you really can't use them to deduce the spread of the virus.

                          Yes. I know the numbers have some impact on when they decide to go to phase 6. The reality is, Phase 6 doesn't mean anything. It has zero impact on preperation being done for the fall. Vaccine seed production has begun, countries have activated their pandemic plans, etc...

                          I know some people here are getting upset that the WHO hasn't moved to Phase 6, because they feel that their are asymptomatic, symptomatic but mild, symptomatic but not needing hospitalization cases in these countries. Truth is, they are most likely right. However what impact will it have if WHO moves to Phase 6. What changes and what is the net positive?

                          Countries have seen the economic effects of announcing an outbreak (ala Mexico) and may be able to hide numbers to protect tourism and the economic recovery of their country. The risk is relatively small for countries that don't report all the numbers (some people may get sick) but extremely high if they report every case (tourism impact). Since the virus is currently mild, the risk is low, if the virus gains in virulence so does the risk.

                          Labs in the US have already said that they are going to stop counting, and other may not be counting as well. Which really does impact the ability to monitor changes in the virus. Regardless the virus is moving throughout the world and there is nothing that WHO or and other government can do about it.

                          Viruses don't read press releases.

                            just your opinion, others (Fukuda,Chan,Palese,...) disagree
                            I'm interested in expert panflu damage estimates

                              I think WHO is doing the right thing by not going to phase 6. If they did it now while the virus is still mild the public would think it as the virus has reached the maximum and as its not causing more deaths its not dangerous.

                              I realize that the # is all about the how wide spread the virus is and not about how lethal it is, however that is not how the public sees it. Currently it seems like everyone agrees that the virus is no big deal, so WHO does the right thing by not giving the impression that it cant get any worse.
