    yes,its amazing that this siberian town has ranked number 1 in a special tuberculosis virus that started in the prisons of the city from overcroweded infected inmates,and spread in russia europe and usa from inmates released to the public without any treatment,because the allready antibiotics used in russia were of very low quality,and the new ones simply cost a fortune for the citys residents.the inmates after release,infected the population,travel around and spread this kind of turbeculosis that was dissappeared before many years but now reemerged as a new threat and equal to HIV aids!if an outbreak happens there isnt enough supplies of the new expensive treatment,so please be cautious when you vist TOMSK and russia in general.regular vaccines dont work,so its better to avoid these places,especially TOMSK.thanks,i will include extra resources of information,later

    These insects are attracted to certain blood groups.---------------Some people have bad reactions, others have none.--- If you react to mosquito bites, they have no mercy.
    If you doubt my word, have a close look at the head of the horse
