The ‘false’ pandemic: Drug firms cashed in on scare over swine flu.

From article:

The swine flu outbreak was a ‘false pandemic’ driven by drug companies that stood to make billions of pounds from a worldwide scare, a leading health expert has claimed.

Wolfgang Wodarg, head of health at the Council of Europe, accused the makers of flu drugs and vaccines of influencing the World Health Organisation’s decision to declare a pandemic.

This led to the pharmaceutical firms ensuring ‘enormous gains’, while countries, including the UK, ‘squandered’ their meagre health budgets, with millions being vaccinated against a relatively mild disease.

A resolution proposed by Dr Wodarg calling for an investigation into the role of drug firms has been passed by the Council of Europe, the Strasbourg-based ‘senate’ responsible for the European Court of Human Rights.

An emergency debate on the issue will be held later this month.

Dr Wodarg’s claims come as it emerged the British government is desperately trying to offload up to £1billion of swine flu vaccine, ordered at the height of the scare.

The Department of Health warned of 65,000 deaths, set up a special advice line and website, suspended normal rules so anti-flu drugs could be given out without prescription and told health and local authorities to prepare for a major pandemic.

Planners were told to get morgues ready for the sheer scale of deaths and there were warnings that the Army could be called in to prevent riots as people fought to obtain drugs.

But with fewer than 5,000 in England catching the disease last week and just 251 deaths overall, Dr Wodarg has branded the H1N1 outbreak as ‘one of the greatest medical scandals of the century’.

He said: ‘We have had a mild flu – and a false pandemic.’

So there we have it the pandemic was false and there was nothing to worry about, the drug companies made everyone how believed in the scare look like an idiot.

And if you took the vaccine your the biggest idiot of them all, by just looking at the numbers instead of running around like ass-hats, we could have averted this craze but no, lets loose alot of cash on pointless vaccines instead.

The number of deaths worldwide are:

Swine flu: 12 220

Regular flu: between 250,000 and 500,000

The world is really a dumb place.
