Swine Flu Update

Oseltamivir is marketed by Hoffmann–La Roche under the trade name Tamiflu, which is the prescribed treatment for this so-called Swine Flu everyone is raving about.


TAMIFLU is normally not recommended for use during pregnancy or nursing, as the effects on the unborn child or nursing infant are unknown. Official Tamiflu Website

But it appears that the South African Health Minister, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, has been conned into believing otherwise. Why else would he make a public statement that all pregnant women with flu-like symptoms should immediately be put on Tamiflu?

His call came as the number of deaths from swine flu (A – H1N1 virus) in South Africa, rose to 20. "We find it very worrying that there is an increasing number of pregnant women who are succumbing to this pandemic," Motsoaledi said in a statement. Further, --- The directive to all healthcare workers... is to put pregnant women with flu-like symptoms (even if they are mild) on Tamiflu treatment. And that’s not all! – Listen to this: "DOCTORS SHOULD NOT WAIT FOR ANY TESTS BEFORE SUCH TREATMENT IS ADMINISTERED."

I’m telling you (not asking) -- WHO is behind this massive marketing campaign to pump drugs into as many humans as possible (even the unborn). It’s an ongoing, vicious, multibillion-dollar racket!

The psychological strategies these people employ are mind-boggling. Any pregnant mother has a natural inborn instinct to protect her unborn child, no matter what the costs! “DON’T PANIC – DON’T PANIC”, is NOT going to stop a pregnant woman, who is suffering from the symptoms of pneumonia, from demanding immediate treatment, --- and if she can afford it she will demand the drug “Tamiflu” because that name has been branded in her mind by the mass media. The drug is only available on prescription and the doctor will order you to complete the entire dose of poison, --- or what is called in medical terms, “course of therapy”.

But the brains behind this multibillion-dollar racket are already one step ahead of governments all over the world who have stockpiled the drug. While the South African Wealth Ministry ---oops sorry, I mean Health Ministry, are doing their utmost to get the old stock off the shelves and into the veins of their gullible citizens, experts in the United Kingdom are already calling for the national helpline to be shut down to stop hundreds of thousands of doses of Tamiflu going out in an unregulated way, which could render it useless when a more dominant strain returns in the autumn.

Don’t tell me that these drugs will have no effect on the unborn child. If nicotine can have severe negative effects on an unborn child, then surely oseltamivir phosphate, (the main ingredients of Tamiflu) cannot be beneficial either, ---- even more so if it is administered in the third trimester of pregnancy as suggested by the health authorities.

I’m listening to Talk 702 Radio while typing this post, and I’ve just heard a doctor say on air that, “there is absolutely no evidence that Tamiflu is harmful to the unborn child.” This is an utter outrageous and irresponsible statement to make, because it creates the false impression that Tamiflu is safe to use by pregnant mothers. What he should have said was, “the effects on the unborn child are unknown,” – as per the official warning I’ve mentioned above.

Obviously, there will be no evidence available at this point in time, ---- definitely not in South Africa where authorities have a tendency to ignore research done by other countries like Japan for example, where it was decided in March 2007, that oseltamivir should not be given to those aged 10 to 19. The Japanese Ministry of Health had previously decided, in May 2004, to change the literature accompanying oseltamivir to include neurological and psychological disorders as possible adverse effects, including: impaired consciousness, abnormal behaviour, and hallucinations.

But people are dying because of Swine Flu!

Yes! That’s the impression the mass marketing campaign is creating, but in reality these people have died after receiving treatment for Swine Flu. Influenza results in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people annually. Vaccinations against influenza are usually given to people in developed countries. Why? ---- because people in developed countries can afford it. It would thus be a waste of money to market Tamiflu in so-called third-world countries. But it is the news of these deaths, which are widely propagated in the media and on the airwaves that cause people to panic and run for treatment.

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
