        MarieSam I saw that they are thinking about putting it to a level 5 but on the WHO website it still says it is at a level 4

                It's an AP press release -- news agencies get tipped off early.

                    I just looked at teh CDC site and the WHO site and neither are updated but I am sure it is like MarieSam says...the news find out quickly and I am sure the WHO is in the middle of writing up the news press release....so does anyone know alot about these levels?? what does level 5 mean now that is different from level 4??

                      Unfortunately, it appears that many of the non-Mexico cases involve people who stayed in Cancun and were not in or around Mexico City.
