What do you think?

Drugs will be for a quarter of population of UK?

I don't get it really, aparently it won't cure bird flu, just prevent it, so if there is only going to be enough for 1 in 4 people, how will they decide who gets it?

It's very scary though!

there are 2 kinds of drugs i think - antivirals to reduce symptoms (ie treatment) and vaccine (prevention), which they have to make a new one of every year because of mutations. so which are these?

the drugs are anti virals not vaccines I think Very scary as it makes me feel it is coming if they are stock piling

These drugs are anti viral

they will be given to Doctors and nurses cos they will be in contact to sufferes

then key workers

then vunerable people

after 4-6 weeks or could have been months after they know which strain will make a vaccine

Very scary, the fact that so much is being spent on this makes me very worried, obviously more of a threat than we realised!
