Ukraine Black Lung Epidemic Kills 12 In A Single Day
The Business Insider ^ | 11/18/09 | Vince Veneziani

Posted on 11/18/2009 4:25:32 PM PST by FromLori

The mysterious Ukrainian mutant flu we reported on earlier is now in full swing as eastern Europe buckles down for its potential spread into neighboring countries.

Over 1.4 million people are now infected. 12 people have died in the past 24 hours even.

Ria: The death toll from the flu epidemic in Ukraine has reached 328, with 12 deaths registered over the past 24 hours, the health ministry said on Wednesday. Last week, Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) chief, Raisa Bohatyryova, said there were "constitutional prerequisites" for a state of emergency amid the flu epidemic, which has left a total of 1,457,564 people infected as of November 18.

The Ukrainian government imposed quarantines in nine western regions in late October in an attempt to curb the spread of flu. All educational establishments in Kiev were closed, and people were obliged to wear medical masks in all catering establishments, shops and social services facilities across the former Soviet republic.

The Ukrainian parliament is struggling to have $125 million in funds authorized to help combat the disease. Let's obviously hope this is containable. The entire situation remains murky, check out the video below:

Note to self: if I ever form a heavy-metal band, we will call ourselves “Black Lung.”

Captain Trips is alive and well and living in the Ukraine!

Is that Randall Flagg I hear?

"The wind had picked up again, it made strange hooting sound in some empty doorway, and farther away he thought he could hear bootheels pacing off the night, rundown bootheels somewhere in the foothills coming to him on the chilly draft of this early morning breeze. Dirty bootheels clocking their way into the grave of the West."

To the people of the Ukraine on behalf of Randall Flagg I Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin send you greetings!

It is hard to know what to believe. Russia today had a piece about it here

http://russiatoday.com/Top_News/2009-11-18/flu-ukraine-aid-russia.html#

but you don’t know if you can believe them hopefully it does not spread here. Sounds horrible.

It was not so long ago that our CDC would have been on something like this conducting a nonpolitical investigation. They used to take the protection of Americans seriously. This is no longer the case.

I thought black lung was something a coal miner got. I never knew it was contagious.
