    Western Ukraine was hit by a severe epidemic of unidentified influenza, tentatively diagnosed by doctors as viral pneumonia. The number of dead has climbed dramatically. Doctors advise Western Ukrainians to stay at home and use preventive medication. The first pedestrians wearing face masks have been seen on Lviv streets
    Lviv kindergartens and schools have been closed, and the city council is to have its emergency session soon to address the flue outbreak. So far, the information released by the authorities on the epidemic dimensions spread and preventive measures is scarce, causing panic to spread in the city.

    This isn't a very good year to stay clear of any of these viruses, they just seem to be everywhere. One has to wonder if the missuse of anti-biotics isn't rearing it's ugly head....

    part of the problem is also the overuse of anti-bacterial elements......these nasty viruses are probably held in check by some bacteria that is insignificant to humans, but gets killed through our obsession with sterilization
