WHO Recommends Countries to Reduce Lab Tests for H1N1/Swine Flu

Bloomberg news is reporting that the World Health Organization will recommend countries should stop trying to test all suspected cases of swine flu, according to Keiji Fukuda, the agency’s assistant director-general of health security and environment.

The WHO suggests countries that have reported pandemic flu cases should focus on diagnosing patients by their symptoms. This change in procedure will free up laboratories to test samples in unusual or severe cases, clusters of illnesses and cases with odd symptoms.
