I hear that the WHO may increase the pandemic level this afternoon to the highest level -- worldwide pandemic. Based upon the articles I read yesterday, it looks quite possible.
I doubt the level will be raised to level 6 unless it becomes more severe. Instead I expect they will implement a severity level, which I applaud.
I'm not sure I agree with you. It's very difficult to determine the severity level. With some people - they can withstand discomfort more than others and may not go to a hospital. Others may go with milder symptoms.
From what I have read, it will not happen today. They are only in discussions at this point.
