Já sabíamos que a famosa operação de medo e intimidação que a OMS/WHO e o CDC dos EUA levaram a cabo através da manipulação das massas e com o conluio dos media, a farsa da Pandemia de AH1N1, mais cedo ou mais tarde acabaria por dar nisto.
Todos, pelo menos aqueles que já não vão tão facilmente nestas cantigas, sabíamos que andávamos a sustentar os chulos da Big Pharma, só não sabíamos o quanto isso custa aos nossos bolsos e como se tinha eventualmente chegado a isto, parece que agora vamos tendo alguns sinais do que se tem passado.
E por cá senhora Ministra da Saúde, senhor Primeiro Ministro quando se demitem, quando se responsabilizam pelos enormes gastos perfeitamente injustificados e desnecessários e que colocaram a saúde dos portugueses em risco?

How irksome, at a time when our national debt is rising by £5,000 a second, to learn that the Government has squandered a billion pounds on swine ‘flu vaccines. Having stockpiled 132 million doses, it is now giving the stuff away. Good news for Big Pharma, bad news for everyone else.
Cash tills are ringing at GlaxoSmithKline thanks to soaring demand for its swine flu vaccine Pandemrix, and Relenza, which treats the symptoms of the illness that has led to hundreds of deaths around the world. Analysts predict a £1bn revenue windfall in 2010 as governments stockpile medicines designed to combat a possible pandemic.
GSK has landed 22 government contracts since last summer, with 440m doses ordered. The company makes the vaccine in Dresden and Quebec, but demand is so great – about 60% higher than for usual seasonal vaccines – that it is outsourcing production to third-party manufacturers.
GSK has been planning for a pandemic for three-and-a-half years has and spent more than £1bn to ensure its factories could crank up production at short notice. “We don’t know how big this deal is going to be, but no one can say we aren’t ready,” says Witty.
Presumo que notem a estranha afirmação deste senhor bem como o facto da GSK estar a planear há mais de 3 anos o combate a uma epidemia que não ocorreu nem se sabia que viria a ocorrer uma vez que não tinha ainda aparecido o virus AH1N1.
“With swine flu fading in the UK (projected winter deaths of 65,000 have been downgraded to 1,000, and new cases are decreasing) the UK government has been left with millions of unused vaccines, and (unlike its contract with Baxter) no clear break-clause to get out of its contract with GlaxoSmithKlein. Although the amount paid for vaccines has not been disclosed, it likely cost the UK government several hundred million pounds. Other governments are also in a similar position: the US ordered 251 million doses of the vaccine, and France and Germany are aiming to cut back on their orders considerably. To say that the case for the pandemic has been over-estimated appears to be an understatement. Now, the WHO has announced that it is to investigate whether or not it bowed to pressure from drugs companies to overplay the threat.”
“The Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly has also announced an investigation into the matter after a resolution [pdf] from Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health, was adopted. Dr. Wodarg labelled swine flu as a “false pandemic”, and claims in the resolution that ‘“in order to promote their patented drugs and vaccines against flu, pharmaceutical companies influenced scientists and official agencies responsible for public health standards to alarm governments worldwide and make them squander tight health resources for inefficient vaccine strategies, and needlessly expose millions of healthy people to the risk of an unknown amount of side-effects of insufficiently-tested vaccines.”‘ By some estimates, GSK was expected to net over £1 billion from vaccine sales.”
