Now confirmed.

Der Standard, Vienna's newspaper with a website that really could be better organised, reports that Yushchenko's doctors have now confirmed that he was suffering from dioxin poisoning.

The short article in German basically says that Drs. Michael Zimpfer and Nikolai Korpan informed the press today that they diagnosed a dioxin poisoning. Interestingly, though, the medical director of the clinic (Lothar Wicke) is reported to have resigned. Apparently he received death threats during Yushchenko's treatment and was offered police protection, but the article strongly implies that the resignation was in some way connected with the confirmation and then non-confirmation of the diagnosis earlier in the week. All concerned are denying this, and Wicke gave overwork as the reason for his departure.
