WHO Consistently Downplaying
Dangers of Mutated Flu Strains

When it comes to the flu, the track record of experts who oppose the views of the World Health Organization (WHO) have been consistently correct in their facts and assertions. Simply put, if the WHO makes a recommendation, it must be opposed to arrive at the truth of the matter. The recent WHO announcements on flu mutations are an excellent example of this phenomenon.

Most people have figured out by now that we can trust the WHO as much as we can trust a baby to not spill milk. They have consistently used scientific fraud to conduct their policies on the H1N1 pandemic. Now, they are consistently downplaying what appears to be a virulent mutated or recombined H1N1 strain at least ten times the lethality of the swine flu observed earlier this year.

The agency recently reaffirmed its position that the pandemic vaccine is as safe as the seasonal flu vaccine. Meanwhile a surge of deaths in Canada and Japan and severe side-effects have been reported from the vaccine.

The World Health Organization said last week that the H1N1 vaccine had been completely cleared of blame for 41 deaths which health authorities worldwide had investigated after suspicions they might have been caused by the inoculation.

The global number of swine flu deaths has jumped by more than 1,000 in a week, according to the latest figures from the WHO themselves.

In late August, FOX News reported that doctors had announced a severe form of the H1N1 virus that goes straight to the lungs, causing severe illness in otherwise healthy young people and requiring expensive hospital treatment.

There is growing concern over the discovery of mutated strains of the H1N1 virus. “This mutation could increase the ability of the virus to affect the respiratory tracts and, in particular, the lung tissue,” said a statement from the French Health Surveillance Institute.

Last week, the WHO tried to dampen fears about mutations seen in the swine flu virus in several countries, noting that both mutations had been found in very few people.

A change that created Tamiflu resistance has been found in about 75 people around the world, said Dr. Keiji Fukuda, chief flu adviser to the W.H.O.’s director general.

Dr. Fukuda also said W.H.O. scientists were “not sure” of the level of threat posed by a separate mutation that helps the virus reach the lungs. It has been found in Norway, Ukraine, Brazil, China, Japan, Mexico and the United States, in both serious and mild cases.

Even though a more lethal version of the virus has infected almost 2 million people and left more than 400 dead in the Ukraine, Dr. Fukuda insists that "experts still need to see whether the mutation -- whose shorthand name in virology is D222G or D225G -- is becoming more common, and how often it leads to severe disease," he said.

One isolate from Ukraine with the mutation had changed so that swine flu vaccine probably would not protect against it well, Britain’s national medical laboratory reported last Friday.

Virologist Timothy Lee stated "there is currently little debate among infectious disease specialists that we're dealing with a recombined strain with a much higher CFR [case fatality rate] than standard H1N1."

Lee stated that D225G is currently circulating worldwide and by stealth since most samples that are being collected are from the upper respiratory tract, while D225G is mostly affecting in the lowest portions of the lungs. "This strain is specifically attacking the inferior [lowest] portion of the lungs which is the largest and most critical pulmonary branch...it is almost as if the virus knows where to most effectively kill its host."

On November 17th, the WHO lied to the world by stating:

"Preliminary tests reveal no significant changes in the pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus based on investigations of samples taken from patients in Ukraine....Preliminary genetic sequencing shows that the virus is similar to the virus used for production of the pandemic influenza vaccine, reconfirming the vaccine's efficacy at this time."

The comments were made after sequences had been generated which showed that four of four fatal cases in Ukraine had the receptor binding domain change D225G. This change had been predicted because it is the type of change expected for the large number of deaths which were linked to the rapid destruction of both lungs. The failure of WHO to consider such a change significant raises serious concerns about the agency's credibility and scientific underpinnings.

The failure of WHO to correctly report on the receptor binding domain after the sequences had been generated destroys confidence in the agency at a most crucial time. In addition to targeting of the lungs and a reduction in vaccine efficiency, Tamiflu resistance is on the rise and one of the fatal D225G cases in France has additional viral changes which raise concern at a time when WHO is posting situation updates which are not credible.

These statements by WHO, at a time of extremely peril, are both scandalous and hazardous to the world's health.
