I came across a web site which keeps track of the stats in Ukraine regarding infection numbers, numbers of hospitalized cases, numbers of people in intensive care and "official" death stats. Obviously the official numbers are not likely to be representative of the whole picture over there but it's better than nothing. So far around 165,000 infected . The website is the site of the Ukraine's Ministry of Health.

Here's the Link

Also I found a forum discussing the Ukraine events at length and there is a Dr Niman who posts there, I think it is the same Dr Niman who operates

He was the one who posted a link to the above website with the stats.

The forum is takes you to the middle of an ongoing discussion

Might we worth keeping an eye on all 3 sites for news and updates, Dr Niman knows his stuff so his views on the forum are worth considering.

Thanks for the links, but I decided to research on news from UK and I found many sites that are not really speaking out about the viral infections in that nation.

The site I found that touch the topic is this one.

According to Chief Sanitary Doctor Oleksandr Bilovol, 13 cases of A(H1N1) flu have been officially confirmed in Ukraine as of Saturday, October 31.

Oleksandr Bilovol announced this at a conference call meeting chaired by Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko on Saturday.

"13 cases have been confirmed," he said.

Oleksandr Bilovol said required tests for confirmation have been sent to a laboratory in London.

Health Minister Vasyl Kniazevych told the press one death has been officially confirmed as caused by the virus.

As Ukrainian News earlier reported, Chief Sanitary Doctor Oleksandr Bilovol said 81,247 people contracted acute respiratory viral infections as of October 30, and 11 cases of A(H1N1) had been officially confirmed.

The Health Ministry on October 30 declared the A(H1N1) flu epidemic.

The Cabinet of Ministers has introduced quarantine in nine regions, banned organization of mass events, and closed schools for three weeks because of the epidemic influenza.

Are they reliable?

Have you been keeping up to date with the news and reports coming in over at the big thread in the breaking news section.......?
Go Here

Reports of tens of thousands infected are coming in from various places, all the figures you mention are simply confirmed cases of H1N1 but remember no-one really knows WHAT the virus is causing the thousands to be infected...the western media are saying H1N1 whereas Ukrainian reports are saying all they know is it is NOT the swine flu ! Who really knows just yet, only time will tell.

The website I linked to is the Ministry of Health for the Ukraine so it's as "official" as it gets really

Yes I have been keeping up with the thread even if I don't post, because I am very interested on what is going on specially from people that are able to post and are from Ukraine.

Still the news are so confusing and is two even more different sites of the story.

You know that here in the US we can not trust the media when it comes to news oversea, and the INTERNET becomes very confusing when you try to filter the real news from just propaganda.

It is so frustrating.

The flu tracker I believe is not accurate. On kansas it says there are 2525 fatal cases. I live by Kansas and I can tell you this is NOT happening there are only 12 deaths so far.
It also says there are 3411 fatal cases? The CDC reports only 2,916 with only 530 being confirmed as H1N1. This is an e-mail I recieved from the rhiza lab employees. I no longer lok at the flu tracker. They admitted their data is erronous!

Dear Michelle,

Thank you very much for bringing the suspicious Kansas numbers to our attention. This is an error that happened when the data was aggregated for the entire US and then accidentally attributed to Kansas during the geocoding process (a google maps API glitch that we will fix as soon as possible).
