The thing I find odd is the whole thing was supposed to start in Mexico,right?So it would be logical that Mexico has had more deaths.
But it seems other countries are getting worse hit.
Its a total goldmine for the Pharma folks whichever way you look at it.
Personally,I would not be at all surprised if they engineered and or released the damn swine flu in the first place,after all this is a global recession...And the big boys need to feed.
GENEVA (Reuters) - The World Health Organization said on Tuesday it was up to national regulatory authorities to decide whether to extend the shelf life of the flu drug Tamiflu by two years, as recommended by Swiss drug maker Roche.
The United States, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong and the European Union's drug watchdog have extended Tamiflu's shelf life to 7 years from 5 after company data showed the active ingredient's longer stability, a Roche spokeswoman said.
Tamiflu, known generically as oseltamivir, is the frontline antiviral being used against the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu, which is causing an influenza pandemic.
Capsules kept in government stockpiles worldwide or currently on the market carry a five-year expiry date.
"It is WHO's view that shelf-life extensions are a matter for national regulatory authorities," WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl said in a statement sent to journalists.
