Japan shuts schools over H1N1 cases

Japan has shut 3,200 schools in response to dozens of students in Kobe and Osaka contracting the virus. So far, there aren't any reports that the illness is any more severe than what's been seen elswhere. Widespread community-level transmission in Japan would cause us to meet the current definition of Phase 6, so WHO will be watching this one closely.
