Thank you, your Excellency Margaret Chan for the Great efforts

I have conferred with leading influenza experts, virologists, and public health

officials. In line with procedures set out in the International Health Regulations,

I have sought guidance and advice from an Emergency Committee established for

 this purpose.

On the basis of available evidence, and these expert assessments of the evidence,

the scientific criteria for an influenza pandemic have been met.

I have therefore decided to raise the level of influenza pandemic alert from

phase 5 to phase 6
