The World Health Organization, defending itself against criticism from an unnamed source, has released a statement saying those who think the swine flu hysteria of 2009 was nothing more than a fake pandemic for theÂ benefit of drug companies are irresponsible:
The World Health Organization has rejected as “irresponsible” allegations that swine flu is a fake pandemic.
WHO also dismissed claims it colluded with drug companies to bring economic benefit to the industry by playing up the danger of the new H1N1 influenza strain.
WHO officials will meet with the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe on Tuesday after the watchdog body questioned whether the U.N.’s health agency acted under undue influence.
Spokesman Gregory Hartl says WHO has always been “very measured and sober” in describing the outbreak as causing overwhelmingly mild disease.
We submit, for the sake of argument, that it was the World Health Organization that acted irresponsibly, when it allowed millions of untested vaccines for swine flu to be released to the general population.
And let’s not forget that stock of companies like Glaxo Smith Klein and Novavax, which directly benefited from the ‘pandemic,’ shot up 30% and 720% respectively during the course of the swine flu scare from April to August 2009.
