From what i've just read on www.flucase.com it seems that this is a combined virus of bird flu & swine flu which is causing a much deadlier virus....
The WHO have also confirmed this on their website!!!
So i think it's time to stop the fearmongering with 'plane spraying' tactics.
No offense, but maybe you should work on your reading comprehension, or read more than just the headline.
The reuters article that Jane refers to atwww.reuters.com... says:
On the other hand, we have a mutation that has been CONFIRMED, in Brazil, Norway, AND UKRAINE, a mutation is also the same as the protein in that location in the 1918 pandemic: D225G.
But no, it couldn't be a small mutation that's causing all these drastic effects, even though that same change was part of the 1918 virus. It must be some major reassortment that hasn't occured yet in a country that is practically sealed off from the rest of the world.. Yeah.. I love logic.

I must apologize - my initial post was bit rude. Also I want to thank you for your enlightening posts.
First I was taking into account only "normal" (mycobacterium tuberculosis caused) form of TB.
Second mistake I did, that I was too bounded to Czech Rep. situation where is relatively low incidence of TB. In fact TB was almost exterminated here during communist reign.
My view is that combination of skin test, X-ray image and experienced physician is sufficient for preliminary diagnosis of active disease. But this will probably work only in some situations. Skin tests will be useless among population with high overall TB incidence because almost everybody in such society was in contact with bacteria. At countries, where health care system is somehow corrupted, will for sure work your not-testing scenario.
There is possibility that something similar sometime happen in Cz. but I'm pretty sure that it is not on daily basis. Physicians here are afraid of criminal charges if they mishandle TB.
Once again thank for your insight.

So you have a one sided, skewed, sequence manipulated search for H1N1 and only H1N1, done by WHO, which has vaccine makers in their decision and diagnostic strategy meetings, regarding the Ukraine or otherwise. That doesn't seem "fair and balanced" to me.
Dead man - say experts from the hospital in Suwalki - had no other illnesses, and the direct cause of his respiratory failure and, consequently, the death was a new flu.
A two-year-old girl in Korea has reportedly contracted the H1N1 virus a second time in just two months, making it the first such case in the country.
According to Yonhap News agency the girl tested positive for the virus in September and made a full recovery but recent tests show she has the H1N1 flu again.
The patient was re-admitted to a hospital in the southeastern city of Gimhae last weekend after suffering from a high fever. Doctors are baffled by the latest case since the body forms antibodies to fight the virus after one infection.
Meanwhile in the U.S. a West Virginia doctor said she also tested positive for H1N1 flu twice, once in August and again in October.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control tested two different specimens from the patient and both came out positive.
