UK H1N1 Virus News

Sirliammcdonald By John Stone

There were two new stories in UK media today, indicating the lack of administrative grip on the almost entirely government fabricated situation. One was the tragic plea of a father of teenage girl who had died of tonsillitis to close down the government’s swine flu helpline (Daily Mail)  and the other was a panel of government advisers –notably Prof Hugh Pennington - seeking to distance themselves from government policy in Tamiflu (Guardian UK) . This had less to do with unpleasant side-effects for Tamiflu which has recently been exciting public concern, than that it might be instrumental in a relatively benign situation of causing the virus to develop resistance to the drug.

One of the committee, Prof Robert Dingwall, told the Guardian:

"It was felt ... it would simply be unacceptable to the UK population to tell them we had a huge stockpile of drugs but they were not going to be made available."

However, firm responsibility for any public panic must lie with government and the Chief Medical Officer, Sir Liam Donaldson, who told the media a month ago that 65,000 people might die from the virus in the UK (HERE ). The yawning gap between Sir Liam and reality was demonstrated in an article by Pennington on 27 July. In a week when people were being told that 100,000 people had the virus, the government had a mere 31 confirmed cases out of 212 tested for. Pennington – who nevertheless favours a vaccination campaign – wrote:

“The best way to assess the accuracy of diagnosis in sentinel practices is to get them to send samples from patients for virology. But only 137 English patients were tested for this purpose last week; 27 were positive. As a sample supposedly covering the whole nation, this is pathetic. All that can be said in its favour is that the rest of the UK did no better; 12 tests were done in Wales (one positive) and 13 in Northern Ireland (one positive). There are 58 sentinel practices in Scotland. They sent in 50 samples; two were positive.”
(HERE)

The absurdity was further highlighted in the letter of Gloucester GP, Patrick Lush, to BMJ today:

“I am An Inner City GP in England, in the past 3 or 4 weeks I have been seeing patient(s) with what I suspect is H1N1 'swine flu', I am treating some of these cases with antiviral medication. The numbers of people that I diagnose will go toward making up the numbers of the UK flu epidemic numbers. But I am not allowed to take swabs on even a proportion of the cases. So that even in retrospect I will not be able to see if my diagnoses are correct. The computer saying 'rubbish in, rubbish out' comes to mind when assessing the UK statistics. Incidentally the numbers of patients with fever, myalgia and what I take to be 'swine flu' went down last week as compared to the week before. I await the late Autumn and winter with interest. “(BMJ HERE)

The stockpiling of Tamiflu goes back to the early days of the avian flu scare when Sir Liam rold the BBC that the virus was certain to combine and mutate with regular flu virus and that he expected 50, 000 people in the UK to die:

“A bird flu pandemic will hit Britain - but not necessarily this winter, the chief medical officer has said.

“Sir Liam Donaldson said a deadly outbreak would come when a strain of bird flu mutated with human flu.

“He told the BBC's Sunday AM show it would probably kill about 50,000 people in the UK, but the epicentre of any new strain was likely to be in East Asia.

“The UK has so far stockpiled 2.5m doses of anti-viral drugs - and may restrict travel if there is an outbreak.” (News BBC HERE)

How he knew this we do not know: four years later, of course, we are still waiting, although the mysterious Baxter incident earlier this year might have brought it to an end (Toronto Sun). At the very least we know that the Baxter incident did not seem to discourage the World Health Organization and the British government from ordering swine flu vaccine from them.

On facebook on Tuesday an article was posted about the Gates (Bill and Melinda) selling off most of their pharma stock and replacing those stocks with stocks in energy companies; yesterday an article was posted about one of the lead developers of the Gardasil vaccine speaking out against it....I am beginning to wonder if something is going on behind the closed doors of the drug cartels.

Maybe....just maybe the light at the end of the tunnel is coming into view...

"With all the outrage over the bank and auto bailout we ought to generate some resentment over this Pharma bailout (it is more money after all- at least than the autos got)." Posted by: Jack R.

The Big Pharma monopoly certainly does not need a "bail out" with $650 BILLION per year revenue. They have generated all of this income through thier control over government, media, and as always their partnership with Big Medicine. The Baxter Pharmaceutical conspiracy is just the latest vaccine scandal of so many, however this triple strain live swine flu vaccine has the potential to cause more harm than all of the previous vaccines combined, especially if this is government mandated. GOD HELP US.

The Prayer [Celine Dion & Andrea Bocelli]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdS6TF2UXcM

I pray you'll be our eyes, and watch us where we go.
And help us to be wise in times when we don't know
Let this be our prayer, when we lose our way
Lead us to the place, guide us with your grace
To a place where we'll be safe

La luce che tu hai
[I pray we'll find your light]
Nel cuore resterà
[And hold it in our hearts.]
A ricordarci che
[When stars go out each night,]
Eterna stella sei

Nella mia preghiera
[Let this be our prayer]
Quanta fede c'è
[When shadows fill our day]
Lead us to a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe

Sogniamo un mondo senza più violenza
Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza
Ognuno lo dia la mano al suo vicino
Simbolo di pace, di fraternità

La forza che ci dà
[We ask that life be kind]
È il desiderio che
[And watch us from above]
Ognuno trovi amor
[We hope each soul will find]
Intorno e dentro sé
[Another soul to love]
Let this be our prayer [Let this be our prayer],
Just like EVERY CHILD
Need to find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe
È la fede che
Hai acceso in noi,
Sento che ci salverà

Chrissie, not just vitamin D but it also interfers with Coenzyme Q 10 which is a must in the energy pathway Krebs.

Co Enzyme Q 10 was the only suggestion that Dr. Schauffer suggested to my husband once he was dignosed with a mitochondrial disorder at Emory Clinic. The dose was high, and it cost us 600 dollars a month that insurance would not pay for.

My husband was warned not to go on a statin drugs. If you see the advertisment for Lipator it warns that some people may experience muscle weakness that may indicate a rare but dangerous disorder (or something like that)---- well it has something to do with US (autism, mitochondria disorder, Kawasaki's). But, one doctor thought welco (takes the cholesterol out of the intestines unlike liptor) thought giving it to my husband would be a good idea. It made him really sick! He could not even speak without stuttering, his thinking became very foggy. Even after they took him off of it he did not return fully to the way he was before.

This girl was not the only person to be misdiagnosed then later die.

You should try and get this er doctor on board. He would be a great asset to us as he seems to make sense

chrissie

A friend of mine was diagnosed with Swine Flu 2 weeks ago, over the phone. He described his symptoms to his GP, who told him not to come into the office as contact with other people should be limited. The doc prescribed Tamiflu (without ever seeing the patient). My friend got sicker over the next 10 days, by last week he couldn't breathe without pain. A trip to the ER showed that he has pneumonia, the er doc said it was unlikely he ever had Swine Flu. His pneumonia has now caused a mass of infection in his lung, and 4 days of iv antiobiotics have been unsuccessful. His lungs are being biopsied today. By the way, he was prescribed Lipitor for "genetic high cholesterol" (he is a marathon runner and in great shape, but his cholesterol was in the upper range of normal) 3 years ago and has been getting sick constantly since then. The ER doc told him that Lipitor or any of the statin drugs interfere with vitamin D metabolism, causing immunosuppression in some patients. Hmmm.

Jack R.

Meanwhile in Australia during the peak of flu season there isn't a peep about it. I've been following the news in the Sydney Morning Herald every day and not once in the last two weeks has swine flu appeared on the front page. No opinion pieces about what to do. Nothing. Just the same old stories about parlimentary battles, a 14 year old murder solved and rugby stars in scandal. If the swine flu was to be something, it would be something there right now, but it doesn't even rate the news.

But it is hard to admit you are wrong, so after spending billions and billions of dollars on a vaccine that is likely seasonal, we'll need to find someone to give it to.

With all the outrage over the bank and auto bailout we ought to generate some resentment over this Pharma bailout (it is more money after all- at least than the autos got).
