Ukraine's health ministry confirms 457 deaths of flu 12/06/09 7:05am
The Health Ministry has confirmed 457 deaths of flu and acute respiratory viral infections from October 29 through December 4 in all 24 regions of Ukraine, the Crimean Autonomous Republic, the city of Sevastopol, and the city of Kyiv.
Ukrainian News learned this from a statement by the Health Ministry.
According to the statement, the Health Ministry registered 5 deaths of flu and acute respiratory viral infections over the past 24 hours, in Donetsk region, Zaporizhia region, Khmelnytskyi region, Cherkasy region, and the city of Kyiv.
Since 29 October, 2,020,178 people have been registered as those contracted flu and acute respiratory viral infections, including 41,227 over the past 24 hours.
Since the declaration of the flu epidemic in Ukraine on October 30, 122,318 people have been hospitalized with flu and acute respiratory viral infections, and 97,896 people have been discharged.
As Ukrainian News earlier reported, the Health Ministry confirmed 452 deaths of flu and acute respiratory viral infections from October 29 through December 3.
From all I have read, it was Not Viral Infections but it was bacterial infections, including the fact the Health minister had previously said that too. Why are they now saying viral?
I have been working on trying to contact people on confirming if it has been Bacterial Pneumonia, which in essence is what people call the pneumonic plague, but I have been simply asking if the deaths were bacterial pneumonia. No one seems to be responding back to me yet, even here in the states, the medical examiners will not answer that One simple question, when I have inquired about it. I am still waiting for Phone calls back, guess I won't hold my breath.
I have challenged the examiners offices, asking why they can not answer the one question - it is always the same response - "give us your phone number, we will get back to you".
