Last Updated: Tuesday, August 10, 2010 | 10:05 PM ET CBC News

The World Health Organization has declared that the H1N1 pandemic, which killed more than 18,000 people around the world and sparked mass vaccination programs, is over.

WHO director general Margaret Chan said Tuesday that the pandemic has "largely run its course."

On Jan. 27, the Public Health Agency of Canada announced that the second wave of pandemic H1N1 2009 had tapered off. As of then, a total of 426 H1N1 deaths were reported to the agency since the beginning of the pandemic.

1. Where are all of the 'henny pennys' who argued
emphatically that my refusal to believe the whole 'swine flu will kill everyone' meme, and my refusal to take some botched concoction, would result in the death of my entire family and everyone I know? The only silver lining I see to the hysteria promoted by who and others is at least this swine flu vaccine didn't kill or debilitate 1/3 of those who took it like the first swine flu vaccine did....at least not yet..

5. This hasn't gone away : Conflict of interest.
The situation in general with regard to the WHO Was being discussed on TV news last here in the UK.

Particular mention was also made of Tamiflu and doubts as to to its effectiveness.

World Health Organisation Mr Swine Flu Under Investigation for Gross Conflict of Interest.

7. I know the Obama administration and WHO is lying to us about this
In fact we have tens of thousands of quarantined people in the FEMA work camps right now.

Some of us know the truth.
