Important FLU Data

UPDATE: 10/17/09
Swine Flu Biowapon Connection?
Last evening on the CBS news Dr. John LaPook reported that there are 36,000 deaths each year from flu. His statement is not accurate and you can see some of those facts below in the excerpt from CDC data as reported by Russell Blaylock, MD.

This analysis shows data far different than that perpetuated by the media and CDC.

Please think clearly in this situation and in doing so you will better be able to protect your health.

Analysis of material by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by Dr. Russell Blaylock. (September 5, 2009)

Critical Observations:
•Doctor visits for flu are down from the level in April

•Total flu hospitalizations are similar or lower than for seasonal flu (yearly flu)

•The number of death secondary to flu and pneumonia is unchanged from yearly rate

•Only two states are reporting widespread infections—Georgia and Alaska. Other states report only regional or sporadic activity, meaning it’s not very contagious.

•There is no evidence that the virus has mutated at all anywhere in the world

•The virus remains susceptible to the drugs Tamiflu and Relenza.

•Only 43,771 cases have been reported in the United States. Because of poor reporting the CDC estimates that true numbers indicate that one million have been infected. Many people did not get sick enough to go to a doctor. Likewise, not all people are tested who go to a doctor.

•Of these 5,011 have been hospitalized and 302 have died.

Death Rates From the H1N1 Flu

•If we use the 43,771 figure and 302 deaths that means the death rate is 0.6%, an extremely low death rate for any flu.

•The percentage of hospitalized patients who died was 6%, again a very low incidence of death.

•Since the CDC estimates that one million have been infected, we must recalculate death rates. Using this more accurate figure, the death rate is in truth 0.03%, which means 99.97% will not die from this flu. Your chances of dying are incredibly low.

Age and Death Rates

We hear a lot about the unusual age distribution with this virus, especially as regards death rates, with the young being more affected than, as with seasonal flu, the elderly (90% of deaths are usually among those greater than 65 years old). The risks of becoming infected are as follows:

•Ages 5 to 24 y/o--------26.7 per 100,000 (0.027%)
•Ages 0 to 4 y/o ---------22.9 per 100,000 (0.023%)
•Ages 25 to 49-----------6.97 per 100,000 (0.0069%)
•Ages 50 to 64 y/o------3.9 per 100,000 (0.0039)
•Over 65 y/o-------------1.3 per 1000,000 (0.00013%)

And the risk of needing to be hospitalized are:

•Ages 0 to 4 y/o---------0.0045%
•Ages 5 to 24 y/o--------0.0021%
•Ages 25 to 45 y/o------0.0011%
•Over 65 y/o-------------0.0017%

This indicates that for all age groups, the risk of being hospitalized are far less than 1% and well over 99% of people will not need hospitalization. This explains why this infection is being downplayed by the virologists themselves, the ones who know most about the dangers of viruses.

The distributions of death also vary considerably by age. Below is the distribution of deaths according to age.

•Ages 25-49 y/o---------41%
•Ages 50 to 64 y/o-----24%
•Ages 5 to 24 y/o------16%
•Over age 65 y/o------- 9%
•Ages 0 to 4 y/o-------- 2%

So, we see that the greatest death rates in the extremely small fraction that die are between ages 25 to 49 and 65% are between ages 25 to 64. The least likely to die are babies up to age 4 years, yet they are targeted for vaccination and as we see from the above data, children below age 2 years get absolutely no protection from the flu vaccines.
