Russia hard hit by this year's flu

Via HC2D :

" People in Moscow are experiencing the worst flu epidemic since 1998, and central Russia is faring even worse.

Health authorities in Moscow have recorded 93 cases of H1N1 swine flu, with no deaths there so far.However, in the north-western region of Murmansk, swine flu has killed a two-year-old girl.

An 61-year old tourist from Australia, who came to Russia to get married, also died after becoming infected with swine flu several weeks ago.

Russian health authorities are certain that the man was contaminated while on an aeroplane by someone who had been infected in Hong Kong."
