Barbados Stockpiling Anti-Bird Flu Drug

“Prime minister Owen Arthur said that his government had decided to deploy resources now rather than adopt a wait-and-see policy in the face of the threat.

Arthur said he had given permission to his minister of health “to pay to stockpile the drugs” now so the country “would be ready” if the virus reaches the island.”

Only the Lord knows where the money is going to come from. Barbados hasn’t even paid it’s government drug-plan pharmacists for three months.
