Outbreak of Public Apathy
Pacific island nations have been warned they are more vulnerable to apathy than other countries.
The new strain of Public Apathy has been detected in 19 countries worldwide, with the Asia Pacific Region and Australia in particular featuring heavily.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned that if cases are reported, the impact will be even worse than elsewhere.
"They have only a limited stretch of their public propaganda systems and a limited stretch of their essential tools like mass panic, social concern, empathy and all that," WHO medical officer Dr Jacob Kool told Radio New Zealand .
A recent survey in Melbourne showed that most did not care or did not even want to know of the risks associated with Public Apathy - confirming the WHO's worst fears.
