The CDC and WHO March Forward With Further Manipulation of Swine Flu Data


As the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) are continuing their rampage of manipulation and deception on swine flu data, their crooked epidemiologists are now stating that 4,000 Americans - rather than about 1,200 - have died of swine flu since the manufactured disease emerged in April.

The new estimate by the CDC said their calculations combine deaths from laboratory-confirmed cases of the flu and deaths that appear to be brought on by flu, even though the patient may have ultimately died of bacterial pneumonia, other infections or organ failure.

The CDC has already acknowledged that what was being collected in the US were figures of "confirmed and probable cases". There was, however, no breakdown between "confirmed" and "probable". In fact, only a small percentage of the reported cases are ever "confirmed" by a laboratory test across the U.S.

There was never an attempt to improve the process of data collection in terms of lab confirmation, and any claims to the opposite are outright lies by the CDC. In fact, following the level 6 Pandemic announcement in June, 2009, both the WHO and the CDC decided that data collection of individual confirmed and probable cases was no longer necessary to ascertain the spread of swine flu. As of July 10, 2009, one month after the announcement of the level six pandemic, the WHO discontinued the collection of confirmed cases. They do not require member countries to send in figures pertaining to confirmed or probable cases.

Now that the public is realizing that the "so-called" pandemic is turning out to be the weakest in history, further manipulation of data by officials is surfacing, which attempts to make the swine flu look worse than it actually is, at least in the U.S.

Since the flu is spreading more slowly than expected and the latest figures show a flattening, worst-case scenarios have been revised downwards twice in the UK. The independent reports that In September the "worst case" was cut to 19,000 deaths, and in October it was cut again to 1,000 deaths. This compares with an average annual toll of 4,000 to 8,000 deaths from seasonal winter flu.

The new estimate of deaths by the CDC - actually a range both larger and smaller than 4,000 - will not be released until sometime next week because the centers’ consultants are still looking over the figures, said Glen Nowak, a CDC spokesman.

Michael T. Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, claims the new estimate is more accurate “but doesn’t change the decisions you’d make from a public health perspective.”

“If it was 40,000 deaths rather than 4,000, that would be different,” Dr. Osterholm said.

Both Dr. Osterholm and Dr. Longini said the new figure does not suggest that the epidemic will eventually kill as many as 90,000 Americans, as was envisioned in one forecast widely publicized in August in a report issued by the President’s Council of Advisers on Science and Technology. That report posited a range of 30,000 to 90,000 deaths.

Dr. Longini said he thought deaths were likely to be in the 30,000-to-40,000 range, and Dr. Osterholm said they would “have a long way to go to even get there.”

Various media outlets have confronted the WHO about their sweeping assumptions on the Ukraine pneumonic plague. Despite huge differences in transmission and death rates, the agency stated that it was valid to assume that most of the cases of influenza that have infected over one million people in the Ukraine were caused by the H1N1 swine flu virus.

Although the number of infections in Belarus (now one quarter million) are increasing at a rate which mimics the Ukraine plague, announcements of sequencing data on the viral strain are still being delayed by the WHO, raising concerns of a covert operation to withhold critical information that should be made public.

Media and agency reports are purposely confusing the issue in Ukraine and Belarus by reporting influenza cases based on symptoms and generalizing numbers based on faulty H1N1 swine flu data rather than lab confirmed cases which are a very small fraction of all cases being reported. Consequently, the deaths in the Ukraine and Belarus are actually much higher than what their governments and the WHO are publicly announcing.
