Cases were reported from the Southern hemisphere yesterday: Argentina (1), Australia (1) and Brasilia (6) show, that the A/H1N1 begin to spread in thiese countries. If local transmission increases on the southern hemisphere over the next few weeks it increases the risk that the virus has pandemic potential and will return to the northen hemisphere in the autumn.

The widespread local transmisison in the United States mean that any traveller to the US is at risk of being infected.
