As of right now, the general feeling around the globe is that sooner or later, an influenza pandemic is going to take place.

Roche has laid out plans to allow companies to stockpile Tamiflu for a price.

The goal for Roche is to increase sales of its product, and also to once again remind people that a pandemic could happen at any time.

Roche has released a statement detailing their new plan to allow companies to purchase stockpiles of Tamiflu. They stated “Under the new plan, businesses pay a nominal annual free to reserve their own stockpile of Tamiflu, which Roche will store and rotate to keep in date.”

The U.S. Health and Human Services Department has fully endorsed Roche with the plan, urging companies to comply.
