+ - Only 7 swine flu deaths, not 152, says WHO->

Submitted by

Philip K Dickhead writes "A member of the World Health Organisation (WHO) has dismissed claims that more than 150 people have died from swine flu, saying it has officially recorded only seven deaths around the world. Vivienne Allan said in an interview with Australian Broadcasting, that the body had confirmed worldwide there had been just seven deaths — all in Mexico — and 79 confirmed cases of the disease. Ms. Allen, of WHO's patient safety program stated "Unfortunately that [150-plus deaths] is incorrect information and it does happen, but that's not information that's come from the World Health Organisation. That figure is not a figure that's come from the World Health Organisation and, I repeat, the death toll is seven and they are all from Mexico." Ms Allan said WHO had confirmed 40 cases of swine flu in the Americas, 26 in Mexico, six in Canada, two in Spain, two in Britain and three in New Zealand."
