A DEADLY plague could sweep across Europe, doctors fear, after an outbreak of a virus in Ukraine plunged the country and its neighbours into a state of panic.


A cocktail of three flu viruses are reported to have mutated into a single pneumonic plague, which it is believed may be far more dangerous than swine flu. The death toll has reached 189 and more than 1 million people have been infected, most of them in the nine regions of Western Ukraine.

I heard about it when it originally hit Western Ukraine. They feared at the time it was mutated swine flu.

I don't think the media created this virus.

Well, that'd be one way to generate ratings--create the problem and then be the monopoly on reporting it.  I think there was a James Bond movie where a war was being started by a media mogul so that he would have all access.

But, of course, I was talking about hype.
