Also, the Minister of Health noted that the climatic and temperature conditions in the Ternopil Region did not lead to the development of disease in these regions.

At the begaining of the article they think it's Swine Flu but the article was updated and they cleary state that the Flu has not arrived yet. Doctors in the region are actually telling people to not get the vaccine because it may do more harm then good.

You didn't read the article did you? I didn't think so. Thier worried about the pneumonic plague coming and further weakening the immune systems which makes the people far much susceptible to the more extreme cases of swine flu. FYI schools are quarantined right now for fear it will spread. It has a 5-10% kill rate even when traeted, 90-95% when not. This isn't a non issue.
