Ukraine Dead Increase to 315 - Still No Sequences
Recombinomics Commentary 19:17
November 16, 2009

1,400,999 Influenza/ARI

78,326 Hospitalized

315 Dead

The above totals are from today's report from the Ukraine Ministry of Health.  The increase of 16 fatalities was largely in areas with newer infections and now only 1 of the 27 regions, Luhansk, has not reported a death (see map).  The largest jump in cases was in Kiev, with an increase of 4,964 cases to 104,154.  The climb in patients who have been hospitalized to 78,326 suggests patients are being hospitalized and treated, but the number of deaths continue to increase at a rate of 16-26 per day.

The steady increase in the number of fatalities continues to cause concerns of small genetic changes.  WHO has not directly answered questions at news conferences, and the role of single nucleotide chnages changes in the high number of hemorrhagic fatalities remains unclear.

Poland is now also reporting fatalities, although not at the level of Ukraine.  However, there have been a significant number of fatalities in Belarus, raising concerns of spread.

Release of the Ukraine sequences is long overdue.
