Re: WHO downgrades status of oseltamivir
In practice it seemed useless at ameliorating flu severity or duration
Some people had significant adverse reactions
'Swine flu' with hindsight was no worse than 'ordinary flu' as per epidemic a few years prior.
Secondary infections in vulnerable more appropriately treated with antibiotics than relying on tamiflu
Again in hindsight a huge fuss over nothing and waste of money
