‘Swine Flu’ Double Psychology

The ‘swine flu’ headlines are once again stoking fear not only in the hearts and minds of governments, but ordinary peoples’, too.

The British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, the UK news agency [paid for by the public but controlled by the elite] trumpeted:

“Swine flu could hit one in three”

Does one in three mean a third?

“A third of the world’s population could be infected with swine flu, expert projections suggest.”

[Note: GlaxoSmithKline Plc, a major pharmaceutical company, is coincidentally based in Britain]

Who is this ‘expert?’

“Although one in three who come in contact will likely become infected, the Imperial College London team declined to estimate the death toll.” BBC said.

We dare you! Out with the estimate you fear mongers!

Where did the researchers get their data from?

“Working in collaboration with the WHO and public health agencies in Mexico, the researchers assessed the Mexico epidemic using data to the end of April and taking into account factors like international spread and viral genetic diversity.” BBC murmured.

“Lead researcher Professor Neil Ferguson said it was too early to say whether the virus will cause deaths on a massive scale, or prove little more lethal than normal seasonal flu.

Worse than 1957 [for sure,]  but not quite as bad as 1918

“His ‘fast and dirty’ analysis of Mexico’s swine flu outbreak suggests that the H1N1 virus is about as dangerous as the virus behind a 1957 pandemic that killed 2 million people worldwide.” BBC added.

Do you have to be a professor to come up with that kind of  ‘fast and dirty’ analysis?

“But it’s not nearly as lethal as the bug that caused the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, which caused an estimated 50 million deaths in 1918.”  BBC said, not specifying whether it was their conclusion, or something extra the professor had said, but couldn’t be attributed to him.

Seriously, it takes a lot chutzpah to pluck a virus like A(H1N1) out of the air and place its potential damage somewhere between “the bug that caused the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic,” and “the virus behind a 1957 pandemic that killed 2 million people.”

That’s an amazing prediction by any standard of imagination, save for commercial marketing of a manufactured product [ahem, pharmaceutical.]

Doesn’t it sound amazing the similarity between the technical description of A(H1N1) virus and that of a commercially manufactured product? Professor Ferguson could be describing a car tire which is designed to give you say, 15,000miles on pavement, but not more than 8k on dirt roads.

We suspect collision between WHO and the professor. Are the two in any way related?

“Prof Ferguson … sits on the World Health Organisation’s emergency committee for the outbreak,” BBC conceded.

And how do we know if we died of A(H1N1), rather than another mutation of the virus?

You don’t. “To put that into context, normal seasonal flu every year probably affects around 10% of the world’s population every year, so we are heading for a flu season which is perhaps three times worse than usual – not allowing for whether this virus is more severe than normal seasonal flu viruses.” Ferguson says.

Pray, where’s all this leading to, prof F.?

“His study suggests swine flu could kill four in every 1,000 infected people.” BBC interjected.

“We really need to be prepared, particularly for the autumn. At the moment, the virus is not spreading fast in the northern hemisphere, because we are outside the normal flu season, but come the autumn it is likely to cause a really major epidemic.

“One of the key decisions which has to be made this week by the world community is how much do we switch over current vaccine production for seasonal flu to make a vaccine against this particular virus? I think those decisions need to be made quickly.” Ferguson said.

FEWW Moderators know if they push the case too hard and fast, the pharmaceuticals could call their bluff-calling hand by switching own cards, as it were. They could release the X(NyNz) ” selectively-targeting” flu virus  mutation [similar to the current one whose victims are 99.5% Mexicans,] and strike another section of the world population with an added vengeance,  in an attempt to clear their image.

You can just about imagine Prof Ferguson and other WHO reps on the TV screen looking at you angrily, screaming “WE TOLD YOU SO!”

If what you are saying is even remotely true, and the threat of a new [more powerful than the seasonal] flu pandemic is imminent, then governments must discharge  their responsibility to the people by taking at least the following two steps:

  1. Dismantle WHO and replace it with an honest, professional and competent organization.
  2. Nationalize pharmaceuticals to eliminate any threat of the laboratory-engineered “designer mutations” of flu and other deadly viral disease pandemics, weapons used for monetary exploitation.

    Nationalize pharmaceuticals to eliminate any threat of the laboratory-engineered “designer mutations” of flu and other deadly viral disease pandemics, which are used or commercial exploitation.

    Great! We people cannot left our security to organizations so incompetent(like WHO) or (like pharmaceuticals)so willing to save only who can paid to them for the cure. They are a shame for humanity.

    Those enterprises should be nationalized to return to the people the bio-medical knowledge that they have stolen us(this knowledge should be a common good of humanity, not a property of a few capitalists. Never more than today the phrase “property is theft” was more right) with the “patent rights” that prevents any other than them to produce the needed medicines(and letting the poor people die).

    ADDENDUM: I don`t belive this virus was created in the lab. This will be an unnecessary task. There is already a giant factory that creates new viruses: the farming industry (with thousands of birds and pigs living together in farms, this kind of viruses are unavoidable).

    So let also stop the obscene farming industry that also consumes billions of tons of crops that could feed the people of Africa and emits more CO2 than trasportation( 1kg of beef produces 4kg of CO2 , equal to driving 60 km in road)

    WHO chief warns against false security about flu
    Fri May 15, 2009 8:25am EDT
    By Stephanie Nebehay

    GENEVA (Reuters) – The World Health Organization warned on Friday against a false sense of security from waning and apparently mild outbreaks of H1N1 flu, saying the worst may not be over.

    WHO Director-General Margaret Chan, who raised the United Nations agency’s pandemic alert to the second-highest level, said there remained “great uncertainty” about the strain that could pose particular threats in Southeast Asia.

    “We are meeting at a time of crisis that could have global implications,” she told an intergovernmental meeting on pandemic preparedness at the WHO’s Geneva headquarters.

    The meeting is tackling the sensitive question of virus sharing, in which countries provide biological specimens to the international community for use by pharmaceutical companies and vaccine makers who are formulating jab ingredients.

    At the height of fears about bird flu, Indonesia had refused to share H5N1 virus samples without guarantees that any vaccines developed from them would be made available to poorer countries at an affordable price.

    GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi-Aventis, Novartis, Baxter International and other pharmaceutical companies others are awaiting WHO guidance about whether to start mass-producing vaccines to fight H1N1, which may force them to cut production of seasonal flu shots.

    Chan said she would make a recommendation soon about the appropriate balance between the types of jabs.

    “We are moving on two tracks to ensure some security for seasonal vaccine and at the same time kick-starting early scientific work for pandemic vaccine,” she told the session.


    The WHO chief commended countries with H1N1 infections for their “timely sharing of samples for risk assessment and making seed vaccine,” saying that starting point for larger production of jabs could be ready by the end of this month.

    And another top official, acting WHO director-general Keiji Fukuda, said there had been “rapid, widespread sharing of specimens” to date.

    Participants in the two-day WHO meeting are seeking to reach agreement on standards for transparency, trust, and sovereignty related to virus sample sharing, an issue that is also expected to dominate next week’s annual World Health Assembly in Geneva.

    “I hope the end result is something really balanced that we can use for a long time,” Fukuda said.

    According to the latest WHO count, some 7,520 people in 34 countries have been infected with the strain that is a genetic mixture of swine, bird and human viruses. Belgium was the latest addition to that official tally.

    Mexico has experienced 60 deaths from the virus that has also killed three people in the United States, one person in Canada and one in Costa Rica.

    Most patients infected with the flu, which spreads like the seasonal flu through sneezes, coughs and air droplets, have experienced mild symptoms and some appear to be asymptomatic.

    Antiviral drugs such as Roche’s Tamiflu and GlaxoSmithKline’s Relenza are effective against the H1N1 strain. At present, however, the majority of people catching it are able to recover without drug treatment.

    The WHO’s pandemic alert scale represents its views on the way a virus is spreading, not the severity of its effects.

    Evidence that H1N1 flu is spreading in a sustained way in communities outside of the Americas would prompt Chan to push the global alert to the top of the six-point scale and declare a full pandemic is underway.

    The two European countries with the highest concentrations of cases are Spain with 100 and Britain with 71.

    The virus has made a much smaller impact so far in Asia, with 7 infections in New Zealand, 4 in Japan, 4 in China and Hong Kong, 3 in South Korea and 2 in Thailand. No cases have been reported in Africa and Israel is the sole Middle Eastern state with WHO-confirmed infections, with 7.

    Financial markets have already shrugged off fears about a possible pandemic, and most people have returned to normal routines, with schools re-opened in infected areas.

    But Chan stressed that important risks remain.

    She said the WHO is closely watching parts of Southeast Asia that saw large outbreaks of H5N1 avian flu — a virus that can be deadly when it passes from birds to humans, but has not spread easily between people to date.

    A mixture of H5N1 and H1N1 viruses could have a big impact, she said, while stressing: “I am not saying it will happen.”
