View Full Version : Million hit by ‘plague worse than swine flue’

A DEADLY plague could sweep across Europe, doctors fear, after an outbreak of a virus in Ukraine plunged the country and its neighbours into a state of panic.

A cocktail of three flu viruses are reported to have mutated into a single pneumonic plague, which it is believed may be far more dangerous than swine flu. The death toll has reached 189 and more than 1 million people have been infected, most of them in the nine regions of Western Ukraine.

President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko has called in the World Health Organisation and a team of nine specialists are carrying out tests in Kiev and Lviv to identify the virus. Samples have been sent to London for analysis.


Mystery Virus in Ukraine is Not H1N1

If you’ve been watching the news on TV or reading the newspaper or simply viewing them online, you probably have heard about the latest virus in Ukraine. At first, they thought that this virus is the H1N1. Some say that it is a mutated version of the swine flu (still H1N1). But now they are saying that this mystery virus is not of ‘H1N1 bloodline’, but a mixture of three flu viruses that have mutated into a single pneumonic plague, which is far more dangerous than the swine flu.

“People are dying. The epidemic is killing doctors. This is absolutely inconceivable in the 21st Century.” said President Yushchenko, President of Ukraine.

Ukraine is between Europe and central Russia, and if this continues and worsens, many fear, that it would spread out in all directions causing a massive plague capable of killing millions of people.
