Swine Flu Politics in Ukraine?

I had a controversial article that upset a few people not long ago. I was not exactly showing love for a Ukraine government that seemed to be playing games with the Ukraine people for political malice… (WHO update report below)

Pandemic (H1N1) 2009, Ukraine – update 2

17 November 2009 — Preliminary tests reveal no significant changes in the pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus based on investigations of samples taken from patients in Ukraine. Analysis are being performed by two WHO influenza collaborating centers as part of the global influenza surveillance network.

Preliminary genetic sequencing shows that the virus is similar to the virus used for production of the pandemic influenza vaccine, reconfirming the vaccine’s efficiency at this time.

Additional questions about the pandemic virus circulating in Ukraine will be answered as more data is available.

WHO commends the government of Ukraine for its open sharing of samples to inform global monitoring of the virus for signs of change.

A total of 34 samples were analyzed independently by the WHO Collaborating Center for Reference and Research on Influenza, Mill Hill in London, UK, and the WHO Collaborating Center for the Surveillance, Epidemiology and Control of Influenza in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Based upon the initial findings from the WHO, it does not appear that anything medically unusual is happening in the Ukraine other than an outbreak of pandemic H1N1.

Of course there is reports of serious blackened lungs in autopsies. That sounds like we now need to be looking at a serious tuberculosis outbreak in Ukraine.

Tymoshenko has constantly blamed her political rivals for hindering her efforts to stop the flu! While the Ukraine president blames Tymoshenko for not doing anything about the situation.

“There is a saying in Ukraine: The active idiot is better than the lazy philosopher. And it now looks like people will vote for Tymoshenko simply because she is taking action on this flu issue, which has completely dominated public discussion,” said political analyst Volodymyr Tsybulko. “No one much cares that Tymoshenko was the one who created the issue she is acting upon.”

It is rather obvious now that the panic surrounding the swine-flu, the ‘mysterious’ pneumonia, and other deaths caused by a ‘mysterious’ flu in Ukraine is nothing more than simple pre-election propaganda.

Looks like the political presidential battle in Ukraine has taken on a new level of disgusting habits…

Windows to Russia!
