Bird Flu in NZ

It has all been pretty quiet in the media about Bird Flu for a while, but now ...
So we need to continue to be vigilant and to continue to prepare

A little while ago we found out that some of the NZ stockpile of Tamiflu has started to 'expire' but as was expected that when the mutation occured that allowed the virus to spread to humans it was possible that Tamiflu wouldn't work any way, and now ...

And in the mean time the stocks of suitable masks have all but disapeared from the shelves of chemists etc. At least if the govenment has stockpiles for emergency workers then these won't have expired.
