What a racket

Hey, wouldn't it be great to just invent a product that is pretty much indistinguishable from some other product already on the market but just convince everyone that your product is new and improved and then make people spend BILLIONS of dollars on your product? If anyone says hey your product is exactly the same as this other product you could say pfft, shut up and give me your money. It is whatever we say it is. What do you think we count this stuff? WE ONLY COUNT THE MONEY.

According to MSNBC, the CDC has found that rapid tests to diagnose the “swine flu” can be wrong as much as nine times out of ten. The “best” test was wrong half the time, the CDC found.

The government study indicating that rapid tests to diagnose the “swine flu” could hardly distinguish between the “swine flu” and normal seasonal flu gives support to those medical experts who say the “swine flu” is a harmless, ordinary flu that is being hyped by the WHO and the vaccine companies to justify a pandemic level 6 declaration and mass forced vaccinations.

The CDC checked the efficiency of rapid tests made by three companies. The tests correctly confirmed swine flu infections only 10 percent to 51 percent of the time, and the tests were better at diagnosing seasonal flu.

So they decided to stop counting. Yup. Check out the spin:
Citing the widespread nature of the H1N1 swine flu virus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced on Friday their intention to cease keeping a running count of the dead.
In a decision that may complicate how the American public gets information on the lethality of the H1N1 swine flu virus - particularly during the upcoming flu season - the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced on Friday that they will no longer track deaths caused by the swine flu virus. The official CDC toll in the U.S. will remain 302 dead. Health officials from the CDC said the virus was too widespread to continue counting. The most recent confirmed figures of H1N1 activity in the U.S. from the CDC are 43,771 cases - with 302 confirmed deaths. The H1N1 swine flu pandemic has infected people in 160 countries and has killed more than 800 people worldwide. Vaccine manufacturers are racing to produce doses that meet the demands of governments worldwide. "Health experts say millions have likely been infected worldwide, but doctors can only test a fraction of suspected cases," Reuters reported. "Flu tests are expensive and unreliable and confirming H1N1 swine flu is difficult."

Maybe the CDC needs to buy some computers from Diebold and let them total the count of swine flu cases.
