Swine flu - Is Sri Lanka ready?

World Health Organization (WHO) has declared a Phase 5 outbreak which is pretty close to a pandemic. According to WHO Swine flu (Pig flu) is rapidly evolving its way into more countries. 11 countries has been reported confirmed cases of A(H1N1) infections.
This new virus is a mix of pig, bird and human genes, People has little or limited natural immunity to fight the virus alone. That's why we need a vaccine very fast which WHO is working hard to produce.

I saw a Sri Lankan Health department spokesman has told that they are aware of the threat and are taking all measures to stop the virus entering the island.

Some people say that media is overreacting to Swin flu
