Deadly Swine Flu Sweeps Much of Russia, Neighboring Countries

Posted by feww on January 22, 2016

Deadly swine flu hits 49 Russian regions

Dozen of swine flu cases, including fatalities, have been registered in 49 Russian regions including Moscow, St. Petersburg, Crimea and Sevastopol and in neighboring countries, said a report.

Report Highlights

At least 14 lethal swine flu cases have reportedly been registered across Russia since December 2015.

Swine flu (subtype H1N1 of influenza A virus) is common among pigs. Transmission of the virus from animals to humans is not common and does not always lead to human flu, often resulting instead in the production of antibodies only. However, when it does develop in humans, it carries a higher risk of fatality than the common flu.

Moscow. Swine flu in Moscow in the current epidemic season is responsible for 21 percent of all influenza cases in the city.

  • 147 people in Moscow were confirmed as infected with the swine flu virus, as of January 20.

Other Regions. New cases of swine flu were registered in seven Russian regions:  Kaliningrad, Samara, Vologda, Sakhalin, Novgorod, Yaroslavl and Primorye.

  • In Kostroma, the only registered case was fatal.
  • Four people were diagnosed with swine flu in the westernmost Russian region of Kaliningrad, regional authorities announced on Thursday.
  • Seven people infected with the H1N1 (swine flu) virus in Crimea.

As of January 18, at least 27 fatalities caused by swine flu have been registered across Russia.

Ukraine. Authorities will impose a quarantine, starting January 23, in an attempt to stem the spread of swine flu across the country.

Georgia. The infection has killed at least three people in the mountainous Caucasus region. Georgia’s health workers were put on high alert on Wednesday, following a surge in influenza and acute viral respiratory infection cases.

Armenia. As of January 20, at least 18 fatalities have occurred from complications of swine flu. However, the Armenian health authorities do not consider the spread of swine flu in the country as an epidemic outbreak, said the report.

“This corresponds to a clear escalating trend,”  UN human rights spokeswoman told Reuters.

In addition to the 2,086 killed, about 5,000 others have been wounded.

The figures comprise civilians, self-defense forces and Ukrainian military. However, those are “very conservative estimates,” said the spokeswoman.

N early a million people have abandoned their homes, including 730,000 people that have fled across the border into Russia, and at least 110,000 others who have been internally displaced in the conflict, according to reports.

Who Better to Win the Noble Prize for “Economic Science?”

Posted by feww on October 14, 2013

It could be argued, of course, that no single group of academics, politicians, NWO saboteurs, or otherwise group of individuals of the same species, is solely responsible for the catastrophic state of the U.S. economy in the short term, but it’s a different ball game altogether over longer periods …

You take one look at the U.S. economy and know …

Nobel Committee have done it again!

They’ve awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science to three American professors—Eugene F. Fama, Lars Peter Hansen and Robert J. Shiller. 

Ignoring for a moment that economy is not even a science … Why did they award the prize to the U.S. academics?

Because they showed that asset prices move unpredictably in the short term, but with greater predictability over longer periods.

It could be argued, of course, that no single group of academics, politicians, NWO saboteurs, or otherwise group of individuals of the same species, is solely responsible for the catastrophic state of the U.S. economy in the short term, but it’s a different ball game altogether over longer periods …

UK Police colluded in secret blacklist of 3,213 building workers

Police officers across the United Kingdom “supplied information on workers to a blacklist operation run by Britain’s biggest construction companies, the police watchdog has told lawyers representing victims,” said a report.

Campaigners for the 3,213 blacklisted workers call the findings by the UK’s IPCC as “absolute evidence” of a conspiracy between the state and industry, said the report.

“The blacklist, run by a company called the Consulting Association, funded by 40 major firms in the construction industry including Balfour Beatty and Sir Robert McAlpine, was discovered in 2009 after a raid by the information commissioner’s office. Since then, the victims have fought to find out who was providing information against them. The IPCC’s correspondence is regarded as a major breakthrough.” Read more…

Three weather systems pound the U.S., as freezing temperatures kill/ injure hundreds in Russia

The storms have knocked out power to tens of thousands of customers across Nebraska and Iowa, reports said.

“Significant snow will impact all or parts of 21 states—five by a storm in the Pacific Northwest, two by a storm in New England and 14 by the storm in the middle of the country.” NOAA reported.

One storm is winding down in Northern New England after dropping 8-14 inches on northern Maine. The system moving into the Rockies and Central Plains will gain strength today and a new system is moving onshore in the Pacific Northwest, where another 12-20 inches are in the forecast.

The northwest storm will affect parts of Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho and Montana. The New England storm has affected mostly Main and New Hampshire. The monster storm taking over much of the Plains will impact significant parts of Utah, New Mexico, Wyoming, Colorado, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan and Indiana.

Russia

Hundreds of people are dead or injured, as Russia endures its harshest winter in more than 7 decades, with temperatures dipping to as low as minus 50ºC (-58ºF).

“The country has not witnessed such a long cold spell since 1938, meteorologists said, with temperatures 10 to 15 degrees lower than the seasonal norm all over Russia.” RIA Novosti reported.

  • Russia’s Emergency Ministry has issued warnings throughout 15 regions, as  record cold temperatures are forecast to linger for several more days.
  • The temperatures  fell to -18ºC  Moscow region and -50 degrees in Siberia on Wednesday.
    • The temperatures will plunge to as low as -25ºC in the Moscow-2 region, forecasters said.
  • “Across the country, heat pipelines have broken down due to the cold. In southeastern Russia’s Samara, the cold has broken down many heat pipelines, leaving hundreds of homes without heating, including an orphanage and a rest house. Many schools and kindergartens have been closed for almost a week.” RIA Novosti reported.
  • “The cold spell, along with snowfalls, has disrupted flights all over the country, and led to huge traffic jams. In the southern city of Rostov-on-Don some highways were closed due to snowfalls over the past two days, triggering a traffic collapse.”

Moscow Heat, Smog Claim Many Lives

Posted by feww on August 9, 2010

About 350 people are dying in Moscow each day from heat, peat and forest wildfire complications

Death rates in Moscow rose by up to 50% in July, compared with 2009, Moscow’s health chief Andrei Seltsovsky said.

“On normal days, between 360 and 380 die – now it’s around 700,” he said.

The official death toll from fire-related incidents stands at 52, as wildfires consume thousands of rural homes.

A Moscow doctor wrote on his Internet site anonymously that he was “wary of diagnosing patients with eat and smoke-related illnesses for fear of dismissal,” a report said, “the bodies of those who had died from heatstroke and smoke ailments over the last few days were piling up in the basement, as the ‘fridges are full,’ leaving a ‘rotting stench,'” adding that the situation was similar at hospitals throughout the Russian capital.

“(But) we can’t give that diagnosis — we don’t want to be sacked. We have families to feed,” he said on his site here; comments that were were carried by several Russian media outlets on Sunday.

A harmful blanket of smoke that has choked Moscow for nearly two weeks is said to contain more than twice the ‘acceptable’ amount of carbon monoxide.

On Sunday, the temperature rose to 34.7 degrees Celsius (94.5 F)  breaking Moscow’s record for the sixth time this month.

No figures have yet been released concerning the increase in mortality rates in other parts of central Russia, where persistent droughts and wildfires have devastated the region since late June.
