GENEVA (Reuters) - The world remains under threat from the new H1N1 influenza strain, even if the effect so far has been fairly mild, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Tuesday.
“We must remain vigilant. We may be in a grace period with H1N1 but we are still in the danger zone,” Ban told a news conference during the World Health Organization’s annual congress.
