Supposing people in the UK and elsewhere take information on the National Health Service’s website as fact – has it covered the controversy over the pre-Christmas “XMRV is dead” Virology articles well?

The NHS site allows readers to rate and comment on its article covering this issue – and as of Dec 27, the NHS article on XMRV had received 72,207 lowest possible usefulness ratings (1 star) – vs 282 other ratings. That could be an inflated number since the site might not block multiple votes by individual site users, but nevertheless sends a potent message from involved patients, worldwide.

As noted in the www.mecfsforums.com message string, the title of the article has changed from “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome ‘Not Virus’” to “Chronic Fatigue Virus Doubt.”
