Tamiflu Resistant H1N1 Confirmed in 4 N.C. Patients


www.msnbc.msn.com

ATLANTA - Four patients at a single hospital tested positive for a type of swine flu that is resistant to Tamiflu, health officials said Friday.

The cases reported at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, over six weeks make up the biggest cluster seen so far in the U.S.

It's interesting that it seems that H1N1 is slowly changing and evolving to what we try to do to cure it. It started out only being a resistant strand in isolated patients, and now it's moving on to clusters of people. Did we really think that we could stop it and that it wouldn't find a way to evolve around what we've managed to find that works thus far?

Now that is very interesting...

Especially when there is a hospital in the UK that is claiming to have the same problem yet stating that it is the first in the world to have this...

Very interesting indeed...


Health officials say a Tamiflu-resistant strain of swine flu has spread between hospital patients.

Five patients on a unit treating people with severe underlying health conditions at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff were infected.

Three appear to have acquired the infection in hospital.

They are thought to be the first confirmed cases of person-to-person transmission of a Tamiflu-resistant strain in the world.

I think it's also worth noting that at the bottom of the article it states "Also Friday, the CDC said swine flu cases appear to declining throughout most of the U.S." With an announcement like this that shows that the flu could possibly be evolving to our defenses, it's surprising that cases seem to be declining throughout the US.

So I just got through watching local news, and apparently according to the CDC swine flu cases peaked last week and it's "fading out", but then they went on to say that they expect the next wave to hit after Thanksgiving due to the "gathering of people".

My question is if the "wave" didn't hit after halloween when millions of kids are outside collecting candy from people they don't know who may or may not have the flu, what's makes them think it will happen Thanksgiving?

If there's another "wave" after T.G. i'm officially calling conspiracy. . .

It's easier to transmit a virus passing food around a table full of people than it is running from house to house with very limited contact.

Plus, outside versus inside.

Typical of MSNBC to make it a US only story...

Five patients at a hospital in Wales contracted swine flu that resisted treatment with Roche Holding AG’s Tamiflu, and three more infections are being analyzed, the U.K. Health Protection Agency said today. Four patients had resistance in a North Carolina hospital. A separate mutation that may trigger more severe illness was found in Norway among two patients who died of the flu and one who was severely ill.

While there is little risk posed by the mutations, investigators are monitoring the new clusters closely, according to health officials from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. Since swine flu was identified in April, there have been 57 cases of the influenza that resist Tamiflu treatment. There have been “sporadic” reports of mutations similar to those in Norway, the CDC’s Anne Schuchat said today in a briefing.

this new strain already has a name too "Norwegian Flu".

ok so now next question is- if it is mutating then why get the shot they are pushing so hard for? what are they going to come out with another fast vaccine for this and push that on us also? i believe something is going on we don't know about
