The balance of influenza A/H1N1 has exceeded 700 deaths worldwide since the outbreak of the disease in April, the World Health Organization (WHO) said Tuesday.

The WHO said that as a flu pandemic on June 11, said he is for national health authorities to decide what kind of measures they should take to mitigate the effects of the pandemic. "Different countries face the pandemic at different levels at different times. So it really is for countries to consider mitigation measures they should in regards to the situation in different countries," spokesman WHO Alphaluck Bhatiasevi at a new point. The WHO said last week that theA/H1N1 flu is spreading with unprecedented speed, and spread within affected countries and new country is considered inevitable. So far, more than 130 countries and regions have been affected by the pandemic, many of them find sustainable transport community.

WHO has recommended that countries with large-scale outbreaks to stop approving all cases through laboratory tests, as "this strategy is absorbing most of the national laboratory and response capacity, leaving little capacity for surveillance and investigation of serious cases and other special events." L 'UN agency stressed the need to monitor unusual events, such as clusters of severe infections or fatal virus, clusters of respiratory illness requiring hospitalization, or unexplained or unusual clinical presentations associated in cases of severe or fatal. The H1N1 pandemic has been characterized to date, by the mildness of symptoms in the overwhelming majority of patients, who usually recover, even without medical treatment within one week after onset of symptoms.
