WHO urges restraint on Tamiflu in swine flu cases

MEXICO CITY (AP) - As swine flu continues to spread, the World
Health Organization is telling countries to reserve their antiviral
drugs for high-risk patients.
Health officials say they want to be sure there are enough
supplies in case the virus mutates and becomes more dangerous.
The current global outbreak appears to be mild, but some
skittishness remains. Mexican officials report that nearly 6,000
children were turned away from school in Baja California on Monday
because they had symptoms including sore throats or runny noses.
Meanwhile, Japan's national women's soccer team is canceling its
tour to North America, where most swine flu cases have been
reported.
