Can anyone advise if they have seen any official reports released yet regarding the full results of the tests done in the UK?
Earlier media reports suggest that an update by WHO might be issued today and include preliminary analysis of samples sent to Mill Hill in London.
Meanwhile, we’ve got the first A/H1N1 death in the capital of Ukraine Kyiv. Kyiv City Mayor Leonid Chernovetsky has appealed to Yulia Tymoshenko today with the request to announce quarantine in Kyiv. According to the Kyiv City Administration, more than 26 thousand of Kyivites are sick with acute respiratory viral infections as of 4th November 2009. Epidemic threshold is overpassed on 14%.
Laboratory testing in Ukraine has confirmed pandemic H1N1 influenza virus
in samples taken from patients in 2 of the most affected regions.
Samples sent by the Ministry
of Health were received today by the WHO Collaborating Centre for Reference
and Research on Influenza, Mill Hill in London, UK. The laboratory will
conduct confirmatory tests and further characterize the virus.
What’s more, the dramatic appeal came amidst rumours of biological warfare in the capital Kiev. A plane was said to have flown over the city releasing powder containing a mutated variety of the virus. The Ukrainian government categorically denies the reports. But in a country where everything is in short supply and presidential elections are on the horizon in January, such stories are hard to quash.
