WHO holding emergency swine flu meet

World Health Organisation Director-General Margaret Chan is holding an emergency meeting on Friday to discuss the severity of H1N1 swnie flu outbreaks, but no decision is expected on moving to the top level of pandemic alert, a WHO spokeswoman said.

"The agenda is not to decide on phase 6," WHO spokeswoman Fadela Chaib told a news briefing in Geneva. The teleconference is set to begin at 1200 GMT and last about an hour, she added.

The new strain, commonly known as swine flu, has infected 21,939 people in 68 countries, killing 125 of them, according to the United Nations agency.
