The health ministry said the man had underlying health conditions, including diabetes and chronic lung disease. So far officials don’t know how the man became infected, because he had not recently traveled out of the country.EU extends Tamiflu shelf lifeThe European Medicines Agency, the European Union’s pharmaceutical regulatory agency, on May 9 extended the shelf life of oseltamivir (Tamiflu) by 2 years to address potential shortages spurred by novel H1N1 flu outbreaks, the Financial Times reported. The extension increases the drug’s shelf life to 7 years.Critics say WHO should push manufacture of generic oseltamivirSome critics say the WHO is doing too little to promote the production of generic oseltamivir (Tamiflu) in the face of the H1N1 threat, according to an AP report. Groups such as the Third World Network say the agency should order supplies of the generic drug or encourage poor countries to do so, the story said, noting that World Trade Organization rules allow countries to override patent rights in a health crisis. A WHO official said the agency would work to obtain additional antivirals for needy countries, either through donations or through purchase at the lowest possible prices.last_img read more
