Most flu deaths happened in Odesa region (40), Kyiv (29), Cherkasy region (18), Kharkiv region (15), Donetsk region (15), and Rivne region (14)," says a report published on the Ukrainian Health Ministry website.

Dan I wonder why this article is so vastly different.

Swine flu exposes Ukraine's health flaws
By David Stern
BBC News, Kiev
23 January 2016
From the section Europe

Swine flu hit Ukraine hard in 2009
Ukrainian officials have introduced a number of urgent measures to head off an outbreak of swine flu in the country, such as temporarily closing schools and banning some public gatherings.
The Kiev city government has introduced a compulsory "mask regime" for its workers.
So far, the virus has killed 60 people, and is approaching, or has reached, epidemic levels in parts of the country - including the eastern Donetsk region, where fighting continues against Russian-backed insurgents.
Still, health authorities insist there is no reason for undue concern - an outbreak of swine flu was anticipated for this winter. The measures are primarily "prophylactic," they say, in order to prevent the disease from growing into uncontrollable levels.
"There is no reason for panic," Alexander Kvitashvili, the country's health minister, said on Tuesday. "Ukraine is in the same situation as its neighbours in Central and Eastern Europe."
Still, the disease seems to have caught Ukrainian officials flat-footed. And the number of fatalities, which has surged in the last week, is a cause for worry.
"From the point of view of doctors, the situation is serious," said Dr Fyodor Lapiy, Kiev's chief immunologist. "The number of cases of sickness are growing, and very many young people have fallen ill."
According to Dr Lapiy, one of the main reasons for the increase is the lack of a "culture of vaccination" among both doctors and the general population.

Donetsk, where fighting between Ukrainian and Russian-backed forces continues, has been a focus for the latest outbreak
The number of physicians recommending to their patients to be immunized is extremely low, and the percentage of those who have actually received their flu shots is "practically non-existent," he says.
Another factor contributing to the seriousness of the outbreak is that many people do not seek treatment until the flu has progressed to an acute - and difficult to treat - stage.
"I encourage all people who suspect they have the flu, whether it is actually the flu or not, to go immediately to your physician," said Health Minister Kvitashvili.
Also, needed equipment, such as respiratory devices or surgical masks, are in short supply - or are misused.
Panicked response
However, this instance of swine flu also points to deeper and more chronic problems within Ukraine's health system. Seemingly, every outbreak of a major illness unleashes a panicked response, or at least a widespread scrambling, among health officials.

The swine flu virus - H1N1 - can be fatal
Swine flu:
A respiratory disease, caused by a strain of the influenza type A virus known as H1N1
H1N1 is the same strain which causes seasonal outbreaks of flu in humans on a regular basis
Although the strain may have originated in pigs, it is now a wholly human disease
It can be spread from person to person by coughing and sneezing
Symptoms of swine flu in humans appear to be similar to those produced by standard, seasonal flu - fever, cough, sore throat, body aches and chills. Some people with the virus have also reported nausea and diarrhoea
However, many people who get flu show no symptoms at all, and for most people it is a mild illness - about 98% recover without the need for any hospital treatment.
But doctors have found it very hard to predict who will develop complications
More than 200 people died from the virus in Ukraine during a global outbreak in 2009

Last year, authorities launched a nationwide emergency polio vaccination campaign, after two children contracted the virus in south western Ukraine.
At the heart of the problem lies a health system that requires major re-structuring and is rife with corruption. Doctors are grossly underpaid, and graft touches everything from the availability of treatment, to the supply of medications.
Complicating matters, parliament deputies failed to pass a major health reform package before leaving for vacation at the end of last year.
According to Dr Lapiy, Ukraine differs from its neighbours in significant ways. In contrast to European countries, trust in the health system is extremely low, which is common among post-Soviet states.
But Ukraine is more democratic, and chaotic, than most countries in the former Soviet Union, and therefore lacks a central authoritarian structure that allows decisions to be taken quickly and decisively, when needed.
This is best exhibited by the fact that the country has seen four health ministers in the last two years, he says.
"To sum it up in one word, what we lack is 'continuity'," he says.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

Re: Flu death toll in Ukraine rises to 253

In France between 1'500 and 2'000 people die from the flu each winter. Even two years ago it got so bad that 18'300 died. These articles are just bullshits made to sell ineffective vaccines.

Guys, It is now time to take our countries back!

Re: Flu death toll in Ukraine rises to 253

I've never had influenza since I began getting flu shots umpteen years ago. As a child I had it every fking year.

A lot of people get other illnesses (bronchitis, stomach viruses, the common cold) and say that their flu shot didn't work.

But where those vaccines aren't available, yes, there will be many deaths each year.
