Since the beginning of the mysterious flu epidemic in at the end of October, at least 633 people have died in Ukraine from the unknown virus.
Digital Journal reported in November that the mysterious virus in Ukraine had turned into a black lung epidemic that makes one’s internal organs look burned. One doctor called the autopsy “terrifying.” Experts believe the flu is a serious mutation of the H1N1 Swine flu but the Ukrainian Health Ministry still does not have a scientific conclusion of what it really is.
According to the Black Sea Association of National News Agencies, the number of victims of the virus rose to 633 since October 29, including 18 dead over the last 24 hours. The virus strain has hit 29 regions, including the country’s most populous cities of Kyiv and Sevastopol.
EM Portal reports that the only region that has not experienced the effects of the virus is the Ivano-Frankivsk region.
The total number of Ukrainians who have experienced the flu-like symptoms of the virus has increased to over 3.5 million and 15,946 being infected over the last 24 hours. BSANNA News also reports that the health ministry has forewarned of a second wave of the flu and flu-like illnesses in January.
Earlier this month, the World Health Organization stated that there was nothing unusual about the flu outbreak in Ukraine.
