Slovakia Tightens Border With Flu-Hit Ukraine!
- I see this as a good move by the Slovakian authorities. This is not to sow panic but rather precautionary. We still do not know a lot of facts on the ground. Until we do, it is wiser to be safe than sorry. Having said this, we must be highly critical of all reports but keep an open mind. Let us all hope that this turns out to be another hoax and fear mongering by the PTB. Although, I really doubt it. Reuters reports:
BRATISLAVA, Nov 7 (Reuters) – Slovakia said on Saturday it would close all but one road border crossing with Ukraine on Sunday because of Ukraine’s flu epidemic. Vysne Nemecke, the biggest checkpoint, will be the only one to stay open.
“The reason is the continuing worsening of the epidemic situation in Ukraine,” Interior Minister Robert Kalinak told journalists. “This is intended to minimize any eventual outbreak of the disease.” Kalinak said the EU member state’s decision was temporary and aimed to protect the bloc.
Doctors and hygienists will be stationed at the border to monitor passengers and have the powers to bar anyone suspected of being infected from entering the country.
