Swine flu 'could kill millions unless rich nations give 900m'
National Observer ^ | 9/20/2009 | Rajeev Syal

The swine flu pandemic could kill millions and cause anarchy in the world's poorest nations unless £900m can be raised from rich countries to pay for vaccines and antiviral medicines, says a UN report leaked to the Observer.

The disclosure will provoke concerns that health officials will not be able to stem the growth of the worldwide H1N1 pandemic in developing countries. If the virus takes hold in the poorest nations, millions could die and the economies of fragile countries could be destroyed.

Health ministers around the globe were sent the warning on Thursday in a report on the costs of averting a humanitarian disaster in the next few months. It comes as officials inside the World Health Organisation, the UN's public health body, said they feared they would not be able to raise half that amount because of the global downturn.

The worshippers of Darwinism say only the fittest, i.e. those with the vaccine, should survive. So which side has, which side developed, the vaccine? Could it be the Capitalists of the US? Those rich, evil, Capitalists who should be destroyed?

OK - Let’s all go John Galt and let them destroy the Capitalist system. What in the hell are they going to do the next time a pandemic or similar crisis arises?
