More from the ground...

Streets are less crowded than usual, but all buses and transport are active. Few people wear masks. Just a handful.
Few people from our hostel have been taken to hospital with suspicion of the swine flu.
We have been to told to stay away from hospital and that a select few have the Tamiflu, and if anyone is sick to go to them and take the meds.

The New York Times
Less than two months after ascending to the United States Senate, Barack Obama bought more than $50,000 worth of stock in two speculative companies whose major investors included some of his biggest political donors.

One of the companies was a biotech concern that was starting to develop a drug to treat avian flu. In March 2005, two weeks after buying about $5,000 of its shares, Mr. Obama took the lead in a legislative push for more federal spending to battle the disease.

Where ever you might be, it would be over there by then if things would get that bad my friend. Italy and Kiev are wide apart from each others too and the difference of those countries is like a day and night, especially in healthcare.

I tell you, if we went from 37 yesterday to 600+ on 24h we better run whatever name they put on it.

600 dead? where did you read or hear that? That would be alarming to say the least. How many people are in this area?

I didn't know about this and maybe others don't either as it too is also barely reported....apparantly 40,000 infected in Belgium in one week bringing total infected there to around 75,000 with what is apparantly swine flu as well. A google news search yields absoutley NO further information about this !
The link goes to a page with a non-english article, can anyone translate and post it as I don't have firefox so can't...can we find out if the site is legit and that the article is not some sort of hoax?

My friends saw them spraying aerosol using vehicles on the street. I posted this some 12 hours before. I guess they start the process and reports it later...


1. Where did you post this 12 hours before? I missed it. Thanks!

2. Live translator is pretty crummy; but, the URL in the quote box above translated to the following. Can you clarify or give us any more details on this spraying (stretching) or sources please? Thank you!




MES stated that over the Kyiv and other cities of nobody распылял





Ministry for emergency situations dismisses rumours of stretching over territory of Kyiv and other cities of substances to combat the proliferation of viral infections. Press-service of the Ministry.

The rumors about stretching over the Kyiv and other cities with airplanes and helicopters for combating viral infections untrue, "stated in the message.

MES called citizens not to believe any provocative communications on the epidemic, and trust exclusively official information from the Cabinet of Ministers, Ministry of health and the MES.

On the evening of 30 October, a number of online media reported possible stretching over Kiev medicines to combat influenza.

Remember, the MES established 120 спецгрупп for assistance units of the Ministry of health in conducting disinfection in connection with the epidemic of influenza a (H1N1)

The Ministry of health, as evening 30 October confirmed 34 deaths of influenza and acute respiratory viral diseases since 19 October, in Ternopol, Ivano-Frankivsk and Lvov.

The Ministry of Health announced the epidemics of influenza a (H1N1) in Ukraine.

Cabinet introduces quarantined 9 areas in connection with the epidemic of influenza a (H1N1) and prohibits the holding of events and holidays in educational institutions for 3 weeks.



3. Yahoo Canada now has a story on the unknown cases (7 right?) and the general overall swine flu in Ukraine.
ca.news.yahoo.com...


In the Ternopil region alone in western Ukraine, 30 people have died of unexplained causes in the last days, health ministry spokeswoman Lyudmila Gordon told reporters.


Thank you again for keeping us updated. Take Care!

I've followed this story closely on several dozen web sites and have seen nothing near 600 deaths from the "unknown virus". Thirty seven is roughly the highest I have seen so far and they seem to have segregated 7 of those out as the highly "acute" and unusual ones.

Mind you, in a state of emergency in US (example hurricanes Katrina and Ike) they STOP reporting numbers and limit the reporting to 10 per day so that it takes a year (or years) to get the final number. The reason they do this is to deter panic.

I think perhaps the ATS poster confused two separate stories. The story confused MIGHT have stemmed from the CDC or WHO story about 700 more deaths in USA from swine flu this month than there were last month. I'm just guessing of course. Anyway, I think this thread is on the "unidentified virus" deaths of which there were 7 so far.

Here's a translated piece on the situation..


Ukraine: H1N1 epidemic "completely out of control"

A wave of swine flu disease Ukraine has recorded. According to official figures, 33 people have already died from the H1N1 virus, 81,000 were affected. "The situation threatens to completely out of control," said the head of the security committee in parliament.



Here's a tip for those searching for news on the Ukraine outbreak..

Go to google news...

type Ukraine then search..

sort by date which will show the most recent first..

hit the any language to bring up all the available articles..

In another window, open up the google translator

C&P the article you wish to be translated, using the detect language and select English.. hit translate..

While the text sometimes comes out a bit abnormal, you can generally get the context of what is being reported..

Great work on keeping up with this alarming situation.. for those in the crosshairs, my thoughts & prayers go out to you, please stay safe and be sure to practice all prevention methods available to you...

Is this just another trick from Ukraine with their gas bill? To create panic so they don't have to pay for gas to Russia, wouldn't suprise me at all. That goverment of Ukraine is so badly corrupted.

Honestly i Found the rise in ifluenza illness in the USA to be alarming as well. There were 500 additional deaths in a week. Mind you everything is lumped together but I believe the situation in the USA may be the same thing. We are in state of emergency after all. Over in the USA we never shut down any sort of borders. That is how the swine flu became so wide spread.
If you look at this link, www.cdc.gov... you will 530 out of 2,916 are lab confirmed as flu. You will see how confusing the whole mess is.l
This is why I am looking to the Ukrarine because in the USA we may have a similair situation that they are hiding from us. It may not be as extreme but a 500 spike in deaths,(in a week), is need to be concerned.

What I posted before was what I heard from people, the same thing, but they are spraying using vehicles. You confirmed it from a news source. Seems it was true. Any idea what this 'spray' could be??

I did not confirm it; nor did the translated article. In fact, the article says it's not true.

I can speculate all day long, but it won't mean a thing without establishing a few facts. Those facts are not established enough to even begin speculating. There would have to be a LOT of facts established before I'd begin speculating, and then, I would most likely keep it to myself.

Hi Dreamseeker,
My understanding of the figures that you linked to, is that the figure of 530 deaths, is a cumulative total, over an eight week period from August 30th to October 24th.

We have an even more confusing situation in the UK, where the "official" swine flu infection rates are NOT based on actual Lab reults, but on "expert" predictions!

In terms of "confirmed" swine flu deaths, since June there have been 137 confirmed H1N1 swine flu deaths in the UK (with a population of 61.4 million!)
Link to NHS Website

I'll repeat that - 137 deaths since June, from a population of 61,400,000.

I don't think I'll be hitting the panic button just yet.

aah, I figured out how to translate foreign articles


Here is what the Belgian Article has to say about the 75,000 now infected over there....it's not in the MSM at ALL. The following is a bit garbled but you'll get the jist...


"The number of new infections with the A/H1N1-virus will rise to 40,000 this week, slightly more than double compared to last week.. That would mean that a total of 75,000 people already in our country an infection with flu virus will have suffered, writes De Morgen.

"A peak is not that far. 75,000 cases means that 0.7 percent of the population had A/H1N1-griep so. It is expected that 20 to 30 percent will become infected."

Schools

The number of sick students doubled in Flanders short time of 4 percent to 8 percent. In sommige scholen liep dat op tot liefst 25 procent. Some schools went on up to 25 percent. Zo bleven er gisteren 95 van de 394 leerlingen van het IKSO in Hoeselt thuis. So yesterday there were 95 of the 394 students in the IKSO sent home.

Because the distinction between ordinary and GPs A/H1N1-griep not make is not known how many students are infected with the latter variant. "It is undoubtedly a combination of the two," said Jan Eyckmans of the Federal Public Health. "

Yea but this is for that H1N1 which is nothing more than a little cough and that's about it. Of course it hits some of us harder, but most don't even realize they had it. I think there's no reason to do any fearmongering from that so it's actually good they are not screaming it out loud and making people panic.
