The world is better prepared for an influenza pandemic than ever before, but it remains highly vulnerable to possible outbreaks, the World Health Organization (WHO) said. “Nothing about influenza is predictable, including where the next pandemic might emerge and which virus might be responsible,” the United Nations health agency said in a seven-page report on influenza or flu as it is commonly called. A variety of flu viruses are co-circulating and exchanging genetic material between animals and humans. Such trends must be closely monitored, WHO warned.
