Four in five swine flu ‘patients’ did not have disease

From the UK Telegraph

Around one million doses of Tamiflu have so far been given out, but according to the figures, hundreds of thousands of packets could have been wasted as most people with symptoms of flu did not have the H1N1 pandemic virus.

Random swabs taken by the Health Protection Agency show that four out of five people calling the National Pandemic Flu Service with symptoms of the disease, did not test positive for it.

At the end of the first wave of the pandemic in Britain, just one in twenty people calling the flu line with symptoms tested positive.

The problem? Possibly millions of dollars wasted on unneeded and unnecessary medication.

I wonder if anyone will take a similar look at the US Crisis?
