The World Health Organization announced that it will change the reporting requirements for H1N1 virus infections to focusing on new countries where the infection is spreading.

"The increasing number of cases in  many countries with sustained community transmission is making it difficult, if not impossible for countries to try and confirm them through laboratory testing."

WHO will continue to provide regular updates "describing the situation in the newly affected countries."  All countries including those with widespread community transmission will continue to monitor  "unusual events" related to the H1N1 pandemic including "clusters of severe or fatal H1N1 pandemic virus infection, clusters of respiratory illness requiring hospitalization and unusual clinical patterns associated with serious or fatal cases."  Read the entire report "Pandemic (H1N1) 2009 briefing note 3 (revised)."
