In the case of a mild pandemic (R (0) = 1-65), we projected antibiotic use to increase by a negligible 1 % over interpandemic use of the same antibiotics reported for England in 2007-2008 [95% reference range (RR), 0.4-23%; for estimated background antibiotic use during interpandemic periods, see Supplemental Material, Table 5 (doi: 10.1289/ehp.
"For example, even though it may not be possible to predict how the drug will affect new viral strains, the drug's clinical effects and antiviral resistance profiles in seasonal influenza outbreaks contribute to the evaluation of the drug's likely utility in future circumstances." "Drug development experience with influenza antiviral drug products in the interpandemic period is, therefore, important to assessing drugs that may be suitable for stockpiling," the agency concludes.
"The control of future pandemic and interpandemic influenza will necessarily rely on each individual state's plan to vaccinate persons and detect and contain this disease," the investigators wrote (Emerg.
(51) One article in the Journal of Public Health Policy pointed out that "almost 40% of the world's supply of interpandemic influenza vaccines is used in countries that do not produce their own vaccines." (52) Below are some issues that particularly impact the most affected countries in Asia, and other parts of the world.
Phases one and two are referred to as the Interpandemic Period; three, four, and five are Pandemic Alert; and phase six represents a fully evolved global influenza pandemic.

He noted a few of the advantages to LANIs: onetime-only therapy, once-weekly prophylaxis, and an optimal use for interpandemic cases.
Stockpiles in hospitals, for example, would facilitate rapid treatment of ill patients in a pandemic but might also allow the periodic use of some material for the treatment of interpandemic seasonal influenza to avoid wastage due to an expiring stockpile (36).

Current policy surrounding intervention planning for pandemic and interpandemic influenza is informed by estimates and simulations that arbitrarily assume a constant rate of asymptomatic infection in the range of 30%-50%.
