Pharmaceuticals giant GlaxoSmithKline revealed a further boost from last year’s swine flu crisis today as it said H1N1 treatments helped first quarter sales surge 13 per cent.

The article goes on to say that GSK made “£698 million” from the Swine Flue” vaccine. So it seems what Gordon Brown and Mandelson promised has come to fruition, the big Pharmaceuticals are reaping the profits from a manufactured situation.
The Pharmaceutical industry has only one interest at it’s heart, and that is profiteering. The only people the Pharmaceuticals need to appease are the share holders, if the corporation is not functioning to make maximum profits then the corporation is not functioning correctly.
I find it ironic that the media only have minor reports on such news events. The whole hysteria over Swine Flu dominated the press for months, and then it just disappeared after the frenzy had occurred and enough of the product was sold to make the profits desired by the Pharmaceutical industry.
I wonder what the next “out break” will be?
