GENEVA (Reuters) - The main seasonal flu virus in the United States and Canada as well as parts of Europe shows higher resistance to the antiviral drug Tamiflu, raising questions about its potential effectiveness in a human bird flu pandemic.
The World Health Organization (WHO) reported the elevated resistance in North America on Friday, but said it was too early to know what the chances may be for increased Tamiflu resistance in the H5N1 strain of avian influenza.

Because as far as I am concerned, considering i've never had the stuff, even if i did catch a resistant flu-like virus, such as the one in this article, and it was so bad that i did use Tamiflu for the first time evaar, I think it would still be an effective treatment.
