SULAYMANIYAH, 1 February (IRIN) - Doctors in Sulaimaniyah in northern Iraq say they lack medicines to treat recently recorded cases of the H5N1 strain of avian influenza, or "bird flu." "We don't have more than 30 pills left in our pharmacies to treat suspected cases, and each patient requires huge amounts of tablets for treatment to be effective," said Tahseen Namiq, a senior official at the Kurdish Ministry of Health, who is overseeing emergency operations aimed at halting the spread of the virus.
