Flu Plague strikes Ukraine

Pretty scary stuff...

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...

President Yushchenko said: "People are dying. The epidemic is killing doctors. This is absolutely inconceivable in the 21st Century."

In a TV interview, the President added: "Unlike similar epidemics in other countries, three causes of serious viral infections came together simultaneously in Ukraine – two seasonal flus and the Californian flu

"Virologists conclude that this combination of infections may produce an even more aggressive new virus as a result of mutation."

I hadn't heard of the Californian Flu... I wonder if it causes people to spend money they don't have?
