Swine Flu Vaccine 'not Ready For Months' Says World Health Organisation

Recommended Posts


Dr Chan said that it would be several months before a safe vaccine was in mass production.

“There’s no vaccine. One should be available soon, in August. But having a vaccine available is not the same as having a vaccine that has been proven safe,†she said in an interview with The Guardian.

“Clinical trial data will not be available for another two to three months.â€

Her words appear to undermine assertions made by Andy Burnham, the Health Secretary, that the first vaccines will be ready for use by August, by when it is predicted there could be as many as 100,000 new cases a day in Britain.

Meanwhile, the number of deaths from swine flu in Britain may already be higher than the 16 officially caused by the disease, experts have warned.

Up to one in 200 patients who develop serious swine flu symptoms could die from the disease, they said.

But the official tally of deaths may be an underestimate due to difficulties in assessing causes of death, said the team at Imperial College London.

Prof Azra Ghani said: "For example, we know that flu causes a lot of cases of pneumonia. The cause of death could be recorded just pneumonia and we won't known of it was pneumonia or pneumonia caused by swine flu."

The Daily Telegraph can also disclose that tourists and school parties from abroad are cancelling trips to Britain because of fears that it is a global hot spot for swine flu.

There is concern among tourism chiefs over the potential impact on the economy caused by the virus after the first signs emerged that visitors from Europe and the south east Asia are refusing to travel to the country.

Swine flu will be blamed for the collapse in GDP.

So the govt makes yet another announcement that proves they are doing something which clearly was bu11sh1t. But hey at least they got the spin out.

Labour are a party full of liars, unless the UK was going to be the clinical trial?

The Queen should issue a statement of no confidence in her govt.

'But having a vaccine available is not the same as having a vaccine that has been proven safe.'

Andy Burnham and Sir Liam Donaldson must be gutted that a director at WHO stated the obvious.

Baxter, the company behind the vaccine, was once part of the IG Farben group, the corporate arm of Nazi Germany and consumed with eugenics.
