Tamiflu and Relenza-The Battle Against Swine Flu
The government has stockpiled Tamiflu and Relenza and is sending it out to the states to use for any instances of the Swine flu virus that might occur in their individual states. Although there have been instances of the Swine flu virus in the United States, it has not caused the death toll that it has wrought upon Mexico.
It is thought that one of the reasons the viral outbreak was so devastating in Mexico is because it has been germinating in that country for at least two months. It has now crossed over into the United States, and many experts feel that it is in its viral infancy and has yet to reach its peak in the states. The hope is that it does not become as virulent as the strain that has caused at least 150 deaths and thousands of illnesses in Mexico.
