Oseltamivir (Tamiflu) is an antiviral medication that blocks the actions of influenza virus types A and B in your body.
This from https://www.drugs.com/pro/tamiflu.html#S12.4
"... Mechanism of Action
Oseltamivir phosphate is an ethyl ester prodrug requiring ester hydrolysis for conversion to the active form, oseltamivir carboxylate. Oseltamivir carboxylate is an inhibitor of influenza virus neuraminidase affecting release of viral particles."
