Fake Tamiflu sales warning

3rd July 2009

Experts have warned people against buying the anti-flu drug Tamiflu over the internet without a prescription amid fears that the supplies are fake and often contain sugar or rat poison.

The government's chief medical officer Sir Liam Donaldson said Britain had a "massive" stockpile of genuine Tamiflu and that there were good plans in place to deal with the increase in cases of swine flu. He said a swine flu vaccine would be available towards the end of August with enough for half the population up to Christmas.
