Halloween Ill Mood

Flu in Urkaine

Deserted streets. Hardly ever one or two lonely pedestrians, with their faces wrapped in bandages, hastily cross the street and hurry back to their houses, afraid to spend an extra minute outside. They won’t touch each other with a ten-foot pole, won’t talk to each other even if they are good friends, they just hustle by each other.

People are in panic. People won’t get out from their homes, their TVs and radios mutter dark… something about a disastrous epidemic… something about fatal outcomes… something about the cure… None of these “somethings” sound assuring anymore.

Yes, you can leave your house if you wish. But first comes a long protecting procedures – ointments, flu masks, bandages… whatever you’ve got – anything will do. And you think this will save you? Hardly… You want to check on your brother, living right here, just outside the city. You just need to know that he is fine, that he still hasn’t got THAT. But you cannot do even this. You cannot get outside of this city. You cannot get outside of this place. You cannot get outside of this world. You are in a  trap.

ped.

Kids, instead of going to schools or playing outside, sit at home, watching boring news, that their desperate parents are literally hypnotized with. The TVs in every house are switched to the same program. News.

And you know what is worst of all? The worst thing is ignorance. You have no idea what’s going on, who to blame, who to ask for help and when it will end off. And will it?

This might have been a scenario to a Hollywood science fiction movie, or a backstage to a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game, but it’s not. This is all more than real. This is Ukraine with the Californian flu today…

P.S. Don’t be fooled with the mood, it’s not that disastrous as it sounds, but the whole situation, unfortunately, is true.

  1. Well, it’s nice to see that the US is not the only place paranoid about the H1N1 (Swine Flu) pandemic. In fact, it would seem that the Ukraine is even more paranoid than we are. As for calling it the “California flu”, that would be incorrect. It originated I in Mexico from swine farms, and migrated from there. Swine are a great place for viruses to mutate from birds to humans as most swine illnesses are equally effective on humans. Plus, given the way that poor farmers live in close proximity to their livestock, mutation from one species to another is almost inevitable. Another fun thing to think about is that in the age of easy global travel it takes little more than a day or two for any communicable disease to reach any part of the world. There are very few illnesses that stay local epidemics anymore.

    • yes but what are the chances someone affected is going to israel and would pass it. its nothing to joke about but in all reality more people go from russia to california or california to russia than go from america to israel on any given day. you say its not in israel but you forgot to say “yet”. id be the first to recomend a worldwide quarentine if economies would not colapse soon after.

  2. in Poland no one really cares about that, we only managed to give masks to border force 😀

    *people do care, but not the government…sadly

  3. In some countries money is not the main problem. Not enougth vaccine is being made. Anyway I believe this is example of huge overreaction. Yesterday i read an article which reveals that ~50 people died from this desease in Ukrain… it’s like 1 in a million! C’mon guys… that is not the rate we should be afraid of 😉

  4. are you serious or self stereotyping because either way none of those things are going to help fight off h1n1, although i do think you are right about the underground labs and genecyde i also dont think you should think your home is safer than another because untill you know for sure you cant exclude even the people living closest to you.

  5. can you prove it was an american citizen who carried the disease to your country because frankly with the rate of international travel these days it could have been anyone, even you if youve been here in the last 6 months. and id like to point out again the fact that this epidemic started in mexico so why dont you try blaming the right people, or better yet forget about where it came from stop blaming people and try and figure out a way to get rid of it.

  6. im seriously taking a stab in the dark here but i would say that looks like a joke if its not then one of them must know they are sick and instead of postponing the event wore a mask to prevent an even worse wedding night however they both look to be in perfect health (yes i know that doesnt mean they are) so maybe they dont love each other. but yeah that looks like a joke.

  7. The masks, bandanas, etc. these people are using are useless against the swine flu anyways. Only the N95 specialized mask will work.

    The zombie virus is next it will wipe out the world!!

  8. Lioness do you know of a you woman who’s name is Ekaterina and she was born on 7 January I don’t know the exact year, She’s around 20, 21 or 22 years old and she is from Minsk???
