Ukraine Swine Flu Cases Double

Swine Flu Detonation Shock Wave Continues
The explosion of new flu cases and deaths continues to sky-rocket in the Ukraine with a doubling of reported cases in only 2 days. The unreported cases may be significantly higher. These are still very preliminary numbers, but they are all headed in the wrong direction. We can only wonder if what is happening in Ukraine is only a prelude to what will happen all over the globe. We certainly hope not. Protect yourself and your family now. Check out our flu prevention protocol and look at the video on the protective effects of Vitamin D. By the time you are sure it's headed our way, it may be too late.
What we don't know is if these cases occurred in vaccinated or unvaccinated persons.

Reported Cases in Ukraine Double in Two Days!!!

November 4, 2009

478,456 Influenza Cases

24,003 Hospitalized

60 Ventilators

81 Deaths

The above numbers are from the latest update from Ukraine. The number of infected patients has almost doubled to just under ½ million, compared to the report two days ago (see map). Hospitalized patients also have spiked higher, to 24K from 15K. ICU cases are not listed, but 60 on ventilators are. However, most (37) of those on ventilators are Chernivisti Oblast, but Lviv, which has the most fatalities and cases, has none, suggesting the data is incomplete or there are significant shortages of ventilators. The number of dead has risen to 81, but media reports describe additional fatalities, include those in the Kiev Oblast.The explosion of cases again raises concerns that the number of fatalities is significantly higher than the 81 listed. Media reports have described an equal number of pneumonia fatalities which were not considered flu related. The basis of these exclusions remains unclear. Similarly, anecdotal reports suggest the number of fatalities is markedly higher than the 81 in the table.The rapid rise in reported infections, hospitalizations, and deaths in the past few days raise concerns that the virus is transmitting very efficiently. Spikes in cases have been reported throughout the northern hemisphere, but the spike in fatalities and the frequency in hemorrhagic cases in Ukraine have raised concerns.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.Daily updates on the rapidly evolving situation in Ukraine, including sequence analysis, would be useful.
