Q) What is the current level of threat of a pandemic in the world?
 
A) A close watch is being kept on the bird flu outbreaks. Bahrain determined that the threat level is Overseas 3. This means there are some human bird flu cases overseas but the infection is limited and doesn't appear to be readily passing from human to human. A pandemic would be declared if we reached Overseas 6-that is, when there is increased and sustained transmission of human bird flu in the general population.
