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
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 doesnt change the
decisions youd 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 Presidents 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.
