With H1N1 poised to enter history as the least deadly of four global flu pandemics, some experts are calling for an end to Canada's mass vaccination program.
Nature is already achieving what we would hope to achieve by vaccinating, they say.
H1N1's "reproductive number" — the number of people each infected person passes the virus to — was above one when the epidemic began, which led to the explosive initial increase in cases.
Now it is less than one, because many people have become immune, and each old case is making less than one new case. When the reproductive number f

Exactly, I dont think they created H1N1 but they sure did adhere to the ideology of "Never let a good crisis go to waste".
For me the most frantic it got was when they were syaing they would pass legislation forcing certain groups (nurses healthcare people etc.) to get the shot and those who do not can be forceiably qurantined and fined. Ohh also they would know if you were "immunized" by a bracelet or chip. I wonder who would profit from chips and bracelets?
As early as September 2009, a 19-year-old Balinese woman, Ni Wayan Siti, died of pneumonia brought on by H1N1 Swine Flu, indicative of an early flu mutation recognized only now in the news media. The remarkable complication was that the hospital suspected that the patient was also infected with H5N1 Bird Flu. Do not be lulled in the Pandemic lull. The stage for an H1N1/H5N1 amalgamation was established in September 2009, or even possibly earlier.
Influenza viruses not only mutate quickly and unpredictably, but they can swap genes,especially if a person or animal becomes infected with two strains at once. The new H1N1 strain is itself a mixture of various strains, genetic tests show. -NYDaily News This is the end of the beginning, as Winter settles in. From April 2009 until now, it has been the beginning, the time of the so-called "mild influenza." With Winter comes the true flu season, and it will be from December 2009 until about March 2010 that the ultimate significance of the 2009-2010 Great Pandemic can be judged, and ultimately compared to the 1918-1919 Great Pandemic. During the lull in the pandemic storm, this is the time to regroup, and redouble our vigilance in fighting influenza.
The World Health Organization has reported that global deaths from the H1N1 virus have increased by 1000 in the past week. At the same time, the H1N1 virus is mutating, with each mutation causing different effects in patients, and combining in some cases. The national medical laboratory in Britain reported that the H1N1 vaccine would probably not be effective against the variant of the swine flu virus found in the Ukraine flu outbreak. This variant, in which the virus uses D225G as a receptor binding domain, causes bleeding in the lungs. Another H1N1 mutation results in the resistance to treatment with antiviral medication. Swine flu vaccine won't prevent infection with deadly H1N1 mutated virus The same mutation that results in acute respiratory damage, due to the location of the viral infection, has been called a "low reactor" to the vaccine. This means that the vaccine will not provide an immune response for that strain of virus adequate to prevent infection.

Agreed fully, question for you (in the non sarcastic, genuine question font).
Do you think if it were to be a created Flu strain that it was deliberatly released or accidentally?
