Re: so called novel (A)H1N1 (or pandemic H1N1 as the WHO now calls it).
The WHO says: “many countries have stopped counting individual cases”
This is just one indication that the swine flu is an enormous scam.
Even an idiot would realise if you have a dangerous potentially killer virus, you would do all you can to monitor it (especially in the developing phases) to as high a level of precision and accuracy as possible. Doing so gives invaluable data on its virulence, infectivity, pattern of behaviour to help develop a model so that other similar viruses in the future may be better understood. Last but certainly not least, you would do this to monitor how effective any applied treatment is!
What a sub-idiot would do, is not record actual levels of novel (A)H1N1.
“Health officials say up to 30% of the population may become infected with swine flu, based on analysis of how this pandemic is spreading,”[1b]. See? attempts to keep statistics on it have been compiled for analysis.
There isn’t even an economic basis for not monitoring the declared pandemic, despite reports of the test for an expensive. (i.e. the nucleic acid sequencing procedure for (A)H1N1 – about which I have not been able to uncover any information). The reason why cost isn’t valid is that it’s a duty of Government to pull out all the stops to keep tabs on the virus and ensure the population is protected. How badly they do that isn’t really the issue.
The fact remains that a government could leglislate private companies to monitor it and fund activities to tackle it. They could also swing the resources of state health services to monitoring and action groups.
What are they doing instead? Buying large quantites of shockingly poorly tested vaccines from companies like Baxter with an apalling record of operations standards, fast tracking the vaccine, allowing/encouraging/doing all sorts of junk press releases, and granting those companies immunity from prosecution. All that is definately NOT acting in the interests of the people. It is in the interests of Big Pharma.
But the WHO still publishes (13 Nov 09) a global statistic of at least 6260 deaths from over 503536 cases. Which gives a death rate of 1.24% i.e. 1 death per 80 cases of infection.
That’s pretty low.
Swine flu: how the numbers add up (Friday, 31 <b>July</b> 2009 18:06)…
The number of new cases for this week in England was estimated at 110,000, a rise of 10,000 over the previous week. That means in two weeks 210,000 people had swine Flu. 1 in 300 people. [1f]
Page last updated at 16:31 GMT, Thursday, 12 November 2009: The number of new swine flu cases in the past week fell by nearly a quarter to 64,000 in England, figures show… About 21,500 people are estimated to have caught the virus in Scotland up from 17,500 the week before… 182 deaths [1c]
In those two weeks this gives another 149,000 prople with swine flu (estimated) giving a total of 359,333 people in just four weeks. That means 1 out of 166 people in the UK already had swine flu in just 4 weeks alone and they are non-continuous weeks too!!
OK. Now factor in the 182 deaths and assume they died beause of swine flu. What fatality rate is that based solely upon for weeks?
that’s one death per 1974, That’s 0.05%
Boing further, the BBC said “it’s reckoned that 620,000 people in England have now had swine flu… 182 deaths
that gives a death rate of 1 in 3406. Thats 0.03%
Yet the WHO says from update 75, 15 Nov 09 data (which remember it’s said nobody is counting anymore) “over 526060” cases, there are “at least 6770” deaths. That’s 1.2% nearly 30 times greater than the UK figure.
