Swine Flu Causes Outbreak of Political Stupidity in Ukraine

Dr. Yevhen Komarovsky, M.D., has an excellent OP-ED in Ukraine's leading English language newspaper Kyiv Post. Dr. Komarovksy not only refutes a myth about H1N1 outbreak in Ukraine but also ridicules a political incompetence of the Ukrainian government.

Here is an example of how efficient is a centralized system of governance in Ukraine:

"I recently talked to a nurse working in a public hospital. She received a call from a chief of medicine, who said: "Tomorrow you have to bring three face masks to your work." Her justified objection that they're difficult to come by was met by the boss' curt reply: "It's your problem. The night is long. There's enough time to sew them."
