The World Health Organisation has said that nearly 10,000 cases of swine flu have been confirmed in 40 countries.
So far 79 people are known to have died from the new virus, leading UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon to tell the World Health Assembly that "global solidarity" was needed, particularly regarding distributing any vaccine. The global tally of swine flu cases stands at 9,830, after rising by 1,001 in one day with most of the new flu victims in Mexico with some 545 cases and the US, where 409 new cases were confirmed.
