|SWINE FLU NOT AS VIRULENT AS THOUGHT|
Harvard University has come out with a new analysis assessing the severity of H1N1 in the United States. Using H1N1 deaths in the U.S. in the Spring of 2009 and projecting them through the Fall, it looks like the H1N1 scare was more hype than reality. The Harvard paper suggests swine flu was unlikely to create a severe epidemic. So the call for mass vaccinations and the contracts for hundreds of millions of doses of vaccines were misguided to say the least.
This is not the first report to suggest such a thing. Ontario health officials think that the huge government investment was not called for. There have been reports in the French and the British press that the H1N1 ‘pandemic’ was more hype than substance.
All along, the fact that this strain of the flu virus was no more virulent than seasonal flu was never widely made public. It certainly was not the equal of the 1918 H1N1 virus that killed millions worldwide.
So why is the vaccine still being pushed? What else are they going to do with millions of doses? If they told people that H1N1 was not as bad as they thought it would be there’d be even less demand for the vaccine. As it is it appears as if flu activity is already declining. We don’t know what will happen in the rest of the flu season but if it continues as it has so far it will be a relatively mild one.
