Panic in Ukraine over swine flu. 205,000 sick in Ukraine Swine Flu Pneumonic Plague. Latest news!
As many of you know and many of you don’t, I have many friends in Ukraine ,Russia and other former Soviet Republics. Over this weekend I have received several calls on Skype from friends in Berezhany, Ukraine. Some of you know these students, who worked at Skidmore and relaxed at the Victoria Pool this last summer. They are in a state of panic in a Government imposed quarantine that has them confined to their homes with all schools businesses and even markets closed. They wanted to know if we are aware of their plight and the hysteria that has gripped Ukraine and frankly I wasn’t. But now I am and can only wonder why the American press is simply ignoring the largest outbreak of swine flu in the world.
