The United States has sent a supply of Tamiflu to Asia to help the region prepare for a human outbreak of avian influenza, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt said on Monday.
"I am not going to specify the amount or the location, but I want to make clear that we are beginning to deploy it," he said
The deployment of Tamiflu treatment courses to Asia is cause for concern. Tamiflu supplies in the United States are below those of most industrialized countries, so deployment from the US signals a potentially serous situation. Source : Recombinomics
