People in Belarus are asking, "What happened? How come all of a sudden a large number of people started dieing?"

Apparently, they haven't read WHO's explanation. Clearly, those large numbers of people are dieing because each of the viruses with which they were infected all-of-a-sudden and "spontaneously" mutated after it got into them. Just a case of really, really, really bad luck, purely by coincidence affecting large numbers of people at the same time.

The World Health Organization (WHO), in its December 4 statement, named Belarus among the four countries where "recent peaks or plateaus" in the outbreak of the A(H1N1) virus, colloquially known as swine flu, have been observed.

The WHO said that the three other countries were Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine.

The organization noted that influenza activity remained active and intense in some regions of Russia and continued to increase in much of Central Europe in the region between the Baltic and Balkan countries and from Germany to Romania. The peak of disease activity "has passed in Belgium, Iceland, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway and parts of the United Kingdom (Northern Ireland, Wales); activity may be peaking or plateauing in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Sweden and Denmark," the statement said.

The WHO noted that the swine flu outbreak had already peaked in the United States and Canada.
The organization said that the global death toll from the disease had risen by almost a thousand to 8,768 in the past week.

Laboratory-confirmed cases of swine flu had been reported by 207 countries as of November 29, the WHO said.

Ukraine, Poland now Belarus. :glare:

In Belarus, expect an epidemic of H1N1 influenza

Quote:
In 2010 Belarus is expected to more colds than in 2009. Now last week in Minsk, there are nearly 24 thousand cases (20 thousand - in 2009). Doctors believe that the peak will occur in early 2011 and will prevail in the influenza virus H1N1. This is related by the head of the epidemiological department of the Minsk City Center for Hygiene and Epidemiology Elena Fisenko.

"This year, the incidence is much higher compared to last year and multiyear averages. Therefore, we say that this year should be actively immunized. We now have a weekly recorded about 23-24 thousand cases. The incidence rate per day is about 4,5-5 thousands on weekdays, Saturday and Sunday has traditionally drawn far fewer people. This relatively high level for this time of year. Usually at this time the number of cases is about 4 thousand per day "- said Elena Fisenko, transfers "European Radio for Belarus".

According to him, while the classic viral infections, SARS. Flu will get sick in November. "While this is not the flu, and SARS, but these revitalization of respiratory viruses suggests that influenza may behave as aggressively when the season starts the incidence of influenza, which traditionally begins in November" - Helen added Fisenko.

The peak of the epidemic rise in the incidence experts predict a traditional time for Belarus - January-February. It is not excluded that the small spikes can be formed as early as November. Elena Fisenko reported that during the peak incidence in November 2009, ill with flu and colds 170 thousand residents of Minsk.


Are they testing to rule out flu?
