Vietnam : Demand for Tamiflu increases as H1N1 cases rise

Via Vietnam Net :

" With swine flu having made a comeback and already begun to take its casualty toll in Vietnam, demand for Tamiflu has increased greatly.

The management board at the Tropical Disease Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City spoke on March 13 that the hospital needed more Tamiflu medication in case the flu outbreak re-occurs.

Other hospitals also stated their need to stockpile the drug to treat H1N1 patients.

While hospitals specified their need for the special medicine, the Ministry of Health has not as yet taken a decision on use of the 10 million expired Tamiflu tablets."
