A&O stockpiles Tamiflu as firms review swine flu response
Allen & Overy (A&O) has secured enough drugs to treat its entire staff for swine flu, it has emerged, as the World Health Authority (WHO) this week officially classified the outbreak as a pandemic. A&O ordered the stocks of the anti-viral drug Tamiflu - the primary means to treat the new strain of flu - several years ago as part of its business continuity planning as the drug has broad applications for viral infections. A&O has enough of the drug to treat its entire staff and is holding the drugs locally across its global network through third-party medical providers, with the exception of jurisdictions where local regulations restrict such a policy.
