UK Government spends billions on non-existent illnesses

‘Shocking incompetence’: UK health officials threw away £74m of bird flu ‘wonder-drug’

UK’s Department of Health threw away £74m worth of Tamiflu, the antiviral drug, before its expiry date, due to unsafe storage procedures. In total the country has spent £600 million since 2006 on drugs to fight a flu pandemic that has not materialized.
The figures, revealed by the National Audit Office (NAO), demonstrate a “shocking example of incompetence“, according to Public Accounts committee chairwoman Margaret Hodge.
Prompted by several public panics over possible avian flu pandemics in the mid-2000s, the UK government decided to create a national stockpile of Tamiflu (produced by Swiss company Roche) and Relenza (made by London-based GSK) – two relatively new and supposedly revolutionary drugs that neutralized the flu virus.
Between 2006 and 2013 40 million units of Tamiflu alone were purchased. A quarter of those had to be written off.

TAP –  No corruption of course.  Margaret Hodge will never find any.  That’s for sure.

    Just goes to show government is in bed with bigpharma. Profits before health.

    The nonsense from the NI Assembly during that time had to heard to be believed. They wasted millions on the Tamiflu drugs as well, and the Health Minister took to announcing deaths in the hushed Chamber and attributing blame to bird flu in order to justify,his nonsense.

    Best thing they could do with it.Just goes to show that good things happen,but only by accident when government is involved.

    And of course, when it comes to swine flu vaccines, governments don’t want to take the public vaccine that has squaline and mercury in it, they order the better one for themselves.

    You have to ask yourselves, if the standard one is okay, why did the government and the army order a different vaccine without squaline and mercury.

    It’s apparently illegal to give animals vaccines that contain mercury/squaline, but perfectly legal to give humans vaccines containing mercury/squaline.

    Hmmm… something doesn’t add up here… and it’s not a ‘conspiracy theory’ either. :sarcasm:
