WHO's Fears Over Ukraine have Eased, But Looking At Russia and Belarus Now 11/18/09 10:15am

The World Health Organization saidNov. 13that a “high to very high intensity of respiratory diseases” had been reported in Russia and Belarus but it was now less concerned about a big outbreak in Ukraine. “The initial analysis of information from Ukraine indicates that the numbers of severe cases do not appear to be excessive when compared to the experience of other countries and do not represent any change in the transmission or virulence of the virus,” the WHO said in a statement posted on its web site. Ukraine, Belarus and some Russian cities have recently extended school breaks because of fears about the pandemic virus. WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl said school closures were among steps that could slow viral spread at the beginning of an outbreak, but had less usefulness once the flu had reached 5 percent of a given population.

Oh, course the WHO's fears are eased, look at their report from yesterday "It is simply the Swine Flu, nothing the Swine Flu Vaccine won't take care of"!

If you saw my article from yesterday - you know what I think about them and what they say now!
