According to the leading health experts of Council of Europe, swine flu outbreak is really a false pandemic for humankind. They also discuss whether pharmaceutical firms spread alarm over this pandemic to boost orders of medicines.
Wolfgang Wodarg, the head of health at the Council of Europe accuses drug companies which have certain influence on WHO in considering swine flu "pandemic" for mankind. Therefore, in this way, the producers of vaccines against swine flu are sure of enormous gains. Meanwhile, many governments have to waste a great amount of public money into vast stockpiles of unnecessary swine flu drugs, and millions of people must be injected with vaccines for a rather mild flu.

Therefore, Wodarg calls for an emergency talk about whether pharmaceutical giants have impacted public health officials on announcing the risks of H1N1 flu and making governments invest national budgets in purchasing a vast stockpile of H1N1 vaccines. This petition has also been approved by Council of Europe, so this talk will be held immediately in late January.
Vaccine against swine flu
For example, British ministers invested more than one billion pound in buying doses of vaccines ordered at the height of the swine flu outbreak. However, the impact of the H1N1 virus has been less severe than anticipated. At the height of the pandemic scare, around 65,000 deaths were expected in Britain, but it is estimated for 251 fatalities.

He also added that for fear of the outbreak of H1N1 flu, the governments have sealed contracts with vaccine producers where they secure orders in advance and take upon themselves almost all the responsibility. Moreover, vaccine producers can get big profits with having any risks and wait until WHO announces "pandemic" , activating the contracts.
In addition, with the purpose of promoting their drugs and vaccines against flu, pharmaceutical companies influenced scientists and official agencies responsible for public health standards to alarm governments worldwide and make them waste tight health resources for inefficient vaccine strategies and unnecessarily expose millions of healthy people to the risk of an unknown amount of side-effects of insufficiently-tested vaccines.

In response to such information, WHO has given their explanation in public. Firstly, they admit that they there something wrong in the definition of "pandemic". However, they also add that it is necessary to give warnings on the outbreak of H1N1 flu in advance so that people can be aware of this disease and know how to protect themselves from swine flu. Secondly, in reference to pharmacy companies, WHO said that they need measures to control the spreading of swine flu. Thus, vaccine is a good step to protect people from swine flu.
