H1N1 appears to have peaked in parts of western Europe and the United States, but transmission continues to intensify in Canada, the World Health Organization said Friday.

"In Canada, influenza transmission continues to intensify without a clear peak in activity," the UN health agency said.

Doctors visits for flu have been most common among children age five to 19 in Canada. The number of visits continues to exceed average rates for the past 12 flu seasons.

At least 6,770 deaths have been recorded worldwide since the H1N1 influenza A virus that causes swine flu emerged in April, according to the WHO. The agency reported 520 such deaths in the past week.

Spread of the flu appears to have peaked in western European countries, including Belgium, Britain, Iceland and Ireland after an intense period.

Norway and countries farther east such as Georgia, Lithuania, Moldova and Serbia are showing sharp increases in flu-like illnesses.

Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and parts of Afghanistan, particularly Kabul, reported higher numbers of flu cases.

Flu transmission remains active in East Asia, including in Japan, where flu activity remains elevated but stable.

It is decreasing in BC. However, will we see a third wave?? If so will it be deadlier?
