Swine flu pandemic scare ‘one of greatest medical scandals of century’, says EU chief

Reading time: 1 minute

The swine flu pandemic scare was one of the greatest medical scandals of the century, and was engineered to increase the profits of the drug companies, says the health chief in the European Council. The council is to begin an investigation into the role of the drug companies, and how they influence ‘independent’ authorities such as the World Health Organization, after they passed a resolution from Wolfgang Wodarg, chairman of the Council’s health committee. Dr Wodarg, who is an epidemiologist and former health director in Germany, has followed the swine flu (H1N1 virus) pandemic story unfold. “It is one of the greatest health scandals of the century,” he says. “We have had a mild flu – and a false pandemic.” The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the virus a pandemic last year, and health authorities around the world ordered in large stocks of vaccines. In the UK, chief medical officer Sir Liam Donaldson predicted 65,000 deaths in the UK, and convinced the government to place a lb1bn order for swine flu vaccine. In the event, 251 people in the UK have died from the virus, and the government is now desperately trying to offload vast stocks of the vaccine. Wodarg claims that governments have sealed contracts with drug companies that are triggered when a virus is classified as pandemic. “In this way the producers of vaccines are sure of enormous gains without having any financial risks. So they just wait until the WHO says ‘pandemic’ and activates the contracts.” (Source:
