SWINE FLU DEBACLE UNDER INVESTIGATION

I'm not so outraged. I'm more in fan of an overreaction to a potential viral threat than an underreaction. If you fail to act quickly, a real threat would quickly spread and cause loss of life. The investigation on that failure would wonder why public officials didn't act soon enough. As for lumping SARS into this, that is laughable. In hindsight it was not a huge deal, but when any new infectious disease emerges it takes time to determine if it is a joke or a real threat to public health.

The point is that the WHO official that pushed the flu scare was a patent holder and stockholder in the firm controlling the vaccine. Further the CDC, the President,and every tv station in the US pushed this to the max but they still couldn't sell the shots. I'm convinced the whole thing was a fraud, and I know for a fact that vaccines still contain mercury, but tell me this, given the deservedly bad rep the gov't. has with the people, what happens if there is a real emergency? How many times can you cry wolf to benefit your cronies?
