H1N1 Biggest Pharma-Fraud Of Century?

Wednesday, 13 Jan 2010 03:45 PM


The Council of Europe is investigating pharmaceutical companies to see if they manipulated H1N1 flu data so that governments would needlessly stock up on vaccines the companies produced.

German Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, who introduced the motion for the Council to launch the investigation, says vaccine manufacturers pressured the World Health Organization to declare a pandemic to boost their own profits.



WHO’s “false pandemic” flu campaign is “one of the greatest medicine scandals of the century,” Wodarg told PharmaTimes. “The definition of an alarming pandemic must not be under the influence of drug sellers.”

Governments now have billions of dollars of unneeded vaccines produced by Baxter, GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi Pasteur. The governments are trying to sell the drugs, but supply far exceeds demand.

British officials are particularly disturbed.

“Britain has spent a fortune on preparation,” Paul Flynn, vice chairman of the Council of Europe’s Health Committee, told RT News. “We’ve caused a great deal of stress to the population. People are very anxious about it. We’ve distorted the priorities of our health service.”

And what’s behind it all? “The world has been subject to a stunt for the own greedy interests of the pharmaceutical companies,” he said.

Some experts predicted that 65,000 people in the United Kingdom would die from the H1N1 virus, but so far, only 360 have perished.

Gawain Towler, a spokesman for the U.K. Independent Party, puts the onus on governments. “Pharmaceutical companies of course have huge economic interests in encouraging concern over health,” he told RT.

“But we have to blame the governments for going along with it, for not having natural skepticism of the claims of somebody who has a financial interest.”
