H1N1 no deadlier than regular flu: top doctor
Yet, today David Butler Jones says, this flu season will likely have substantially fewer deaths.
"OTTAWA -- Despite the recent surge in H1N1 deaths, the nation's chief public health officer says the pandemic virus appears no deadlier than regular seasonal influenza and that there could actually be substantially fewer flu deaths than normal this season." "When you do take this disease seriously, you can actually dramatically reduce the number of people with severe illness and death," Dr. Butler-Jones said. "So the usual 2,000 to 8,000 range (of flu-related deaths) that we see with seasonal flu, we might actually be able to reduce that substantially."
Experts said the rates of serious illness and death are far from the levels predicted for a novel pandemic virus and that, based on the information available up until now, H1N1 is not on track to causing disease and death on the scope or scale of the flu pandemics of the 20th century.
It can't have been the vaccine program, because the majority of Canadians have not been vaccinated against H1N1.
Despite the hardsell by Public Health Canada, the manipulative means of getting H1N1 diagnosis, the constant fear mongering by the media and the massive profits for vaccine makers, this flu season may actually be an extremely mild one.
But then what was the Difference between Seasonal and H1N1 flu ?
I couldn't see one, could you?
When you have wasted lots of tax payer dollars hyping a pandemic, to justify massive vaccinations, why not just throw the vaccinations out? What difference does it really make?
Some health authorities across the country have tossed out hundreds of doses of the swine flu vaccine because of miscalculations over how many of the time-sensitive dosages are needed at community clinics.
