For weeks, troubling reports have been coming out of Ukraine of hundreds of patients dying from a frightening hemorrhagic flu. Doctors on the ground in Ukraine have stated that the lungs of the victims of this flu quickly fill up with blood and that temperatures inside the lungs of these victims can reach temperatures of up to 135 degrees Fahrenheit. As they near death, the lungs of these patients literally disintegrate and turn as black as charcoal. Last week, the WHO finally confirmed that a mutation of the H1N1 swine flu virus had been detected in Ukraine. This mutation of the H1N1 swine flu virus involved a receptor binding domain change.

Mass graves are being prepared in Houston, Phoenix, California and in other major metropolitan areas across the United States, and nobody seems to know what they are for.

#1) Wash Your Hands
This sounds very obvious, but you would be surprised how many people do not do it. Washing your hands is the number one tip that experts typically offer when asked to give tips on how to prevent the spread of disease.
