VICTORIA has officially thrown in the towel on its attempts to contain the spread of swine flu, upgrading its pandemic alert status to a new, more "realistic" phase of sustain.

The sustain phase means the virus is now rife in the community and no longer, as in other states and territories, mostly imported from overseas or restricted to a few clusters of cases.

Australian Swine flu news articles to date, including economic impact, employer responsibilities, poltical statements, impact on public health systems and more.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/tag/swine-influenza/

There have not been any recorded deaths and, the infection is still rated as mild.

While it remains rated as mild, the more draconian plans of mandatory travel restrictions, closure and restriction of public events will not be involked.

There have not been any reports of wide spread panic.

Great idea to have the State of Origin match down there then eh?
They had the option to change it to somewhere else but no, the $$$$$ won again. At our expense.

There's an Australian cruise liner been refused permission to land in New Caledonian ( I dono where that is! ) because they have sick passengers aboard. No seriously ill passengers, but it shows that somebody somewhere is panicking or preparing, one of the two!

Lil they already had one cruise ship drama with 3 confirmed cases among the crew. The ship cruised around from port to port trying to dock.
