Prescribing Tamiflu more liberally is fine as long as the chain of infection STOPS with the person to whom the antiviral drug is given. If people taking the Tamiflu continue to touch their face and touch common surfaces without sanitizing their hands (or cough into the air, or possibly by not wearing a mask), then the practice could lead to drug-resistant microbes.
