Harvard Takes it Back and Says Swine Flu was Oversold
January 02, 2010
A new analysis from Harvard University, using H1N1 deaths in the U.S. in the spring and projecting likely outcomes for this fall, suggests that the swine flu “pandemic” has been oversold.
The new paper suggests swine flu was unlikely to create a severe epidemic. In light of this, officials have taken many steps that may have been unnecessary, including mass vaccinations.
It is not clear how H1N1 will act in the coming months, but swine flu cases seem to have already hit their peak.
