GENEVA, Jan. 14 (Xinhua) -- The World Health Organization (WHO) on Thursday rejected allegations that the A/H1N1 pandemic is "fake", stressing that it has not overplayed the risks of this new influenza.

"The world is going through a real pandemic. The description of it as fake is both wrong and irresponsible," said Dr. Keiji Fukuda, the U.N. agency's top pandemic expert.
