Flu viruses mutate, so if it's a flu strain it could be a mutation and could be related to the high radiation levels that exist in some regions of the Ukraine. I discussed this briefly back in this post on page 10.
More than 30 people have died in the Ukraine as a result of a mysterious new virus that has an affinty for the lungs, according to reports in Switzerland.
The Ukranian Health Ministry has said that the origin of the virus is unknown, but its affinity for the lungs and the way it attacks young people strongly suggests it is a virulent form of the H1N1"swine flu" virus.
WHO recently confirmed that the H1N1 virus showed no signs of mutating to become more virulent. The emergence of this virulent strain could, therefore, be linked with the activities of scientists, such as Professor Bruno Lina in France, who was actively searching for a virulence gene.
Almost 40,000 people have fallen sick with 951 people having to be hospitalised.

NEWS FLASH! Highest epidemic of swine flu in Ukraine!
Health Minister Vasyl Knyazevych reported that 31 samples were taken from sick people in order to determine whether they fall under the diagnosis of swine flu, of which 11 cases have been confirmed. "It is the interpretation of the result," - he said, adding that on 29 October in Ukraine, 951 people were hospitalized with acute respiratory infections and influenza. As for 30 cases of death, recorded from 19 to 29 October, he reported that the sample was taken only in one case, and the diagnosis was confirmed (A (H1N1)).
