Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will convene on Thursday yet another meeting with Health Ministry representatives to discuss the recent developments of the swine flu and set forth a plan for the case of the virus's possible further spread. Health Ministry officials are also set to meet with their counterparts from the Palestinian Authority and Jordan in order to conduct a joint evaluation and coordinate tentative steps, should the virus reach the region. The World Health organization has recently raised the security alert for the swiftly spreading virus to level five out of six, implying that a global pandemic could be imminent.
