    THE EXPRESS TRIBUNE
    Swine flu patients advised to hunt for antiviral meds

    By Umer Farooq Published: December 15, 2015

    PESHAWAR:
    After two people died of swine flu and at least six others tested positive for the H1N1 or swine flu virus in Swabi, the government seems to have run out of the antiviral medicines which can treat and prevent the disease.

    In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO), which the government would turn to replenish its supply, has advised anyone wanting protection or treatment from the illness to find the vaccine on their own, said senior health officials.

    As many as 30 suspected cases were reported across Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. National Institute of Health in Islamabad received 13 samples. Of these eight tested positive for H1N1, one for influenza B and four tested negative. At least 10 other reports are pending with NIH.
