Almost 22,000 people diagnosed with A/H1N1 virus worldwide - WHO


MOSCOW, June 5 (RIA Novosti) - A total of 21,940 people in 69 countries worldwide have been diagnosed with swine flu, with 125 deaths, the World Health Organization said on its website on Friday.

The number of confirmed A/H1N1 infections rose by 2,681 over Thursday. Luxembourg, Saudi Arabia and Barbados reported their first cases of swine flu.

A WHO committee of experts will hold an emergency session on Friday from 14:00 to 15:00 GMT to decide on whether a full-scale pandemic should be declared, AFP reported.

The organization said in mid-May that about 4.9 million single doses of the A/H1N1 vaccine could be annually produced worldwide, while up to one third of the world population could become infected in the case of a global pandemic.

Despite the dramatic media reports that accompanied the recent outbreak of A/H1N1 or swine flu, leading scientists say the virus is a mild strain and only a further mutation would make it a serious threat. Swine flu death rates are around the norm for seasonal flu fatalities.
