WHO chief Margaret Chan said: “This is a signal to governments, ministries of health… to the pharmaceutical industry, that certain actions now should be undertaken with increased urgency.”

Phase five, one step short of a full pandemic, is characterised as a “strong signal that a pandemic is imminent and that the time to finalise… the planned mitigation measures is short,” according to the WHO’s global emergency planning.
