That's it... call your parents and relatives, watch and destroy all your porn, and crack open a Coors Light because we're all going to die. The WHO has raised the Swine Flu Alert to between 5 and 6.

Phase 5 is characterized by human-to-human spread of the virus into at least two countries in one WHO region. While most countries are not affected at this stage, the declaration of Phase 5 is a strong signal that a pandemic is imminent and that the time to finalize the organization, communication, and implementation of the planned mitigation measures is short.

Phase 6, the pandemic phase, is characterized by community level outbreaks in at least one other country in a different WHO region in addition to the criteria defined in Phase 5. Designation of this phase will indicate that a global pandemic is under way.
