Health officials have confirmed the person-to-person spread of a Tamiflu-resistant stain of swine flu. Five patients on a unit treating patients with severe underlying health conditions at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff are 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.
There have been several dozen reports around the world of people developing resistance to Tamiflu while taking the drug. But there has only been one reported case of person-to-person transmission of a resistant strain - between two people at a US summer camp - and this has never been confirmed.

Or is it the latest use of the media to scare people into taking the vaccine?
Think about it. I saw a thread on ATS the other week with a link to a patent for the H1N1 virus. If you were planning on creating a nasty hybrid virus, why would you go on record about it and put it through the patent office unless you wanted that patent to be found? I think the patent is there to convince those of us who don't believe in the virus to latch on to it. It convinces the unconvinced that it's real, when it's not real at all.
My own opinion is that there is no swine flu, it's a media exercise to scare us into getting the vaccine. Doctors say there is no way of distinguishing between swine flu and ordinary seasonal flu, and I don't know about anybody else, maybe it's because I live in N Ireland, but I don't see a lot of people who actually have swine flu, or have had it, same as I didn't see anybody with bird flu or foot in mouth disease. Now N Ireland only has 1.5 million inhabitants, and there's not even 6 degrees between everybody. I'm constantly meeting people who know people I know, and it's a fairly close knit community in that respect.
Now we're told that Tamiflu won't work, thank you BBC, now people are more scared and there will be more of a demand for the potentially bioweaponised vaccine.
We're being played people, and many of us will trot along like good little citizens and take our goodness knows what ladened vaccine.
If you believe in the whole "mark of the beast" thing, consider this. Every time a new leader of any country comes into power, there's an automatic check that goes on in the population to see whether or not this person could be "the Antichrist". All of those biblical end times prophesies are in the public domain. We're all expecting to be offered a chip that will replace money to be offered, and we'd all react that "it's the mark of the beast" if any such system were to present itself. Swines are unclean animals in the Bible, if I remember correctly. Jesus even allowed a legion of evil spirits to possess a herd of swine in the Bible. They're beasts. Vaccines generally leave a mark, a scar. Why are we not questioning more whether or not this vaccine could be the mark of the beast? How long before employers are demanding that all of their employees are vaccinated, or they get the sack, in the middle of an economic crisis, that are our level was also partly created by the media. We got the daily mantra of "credit crunch credit crunch credit crunch" for months, and we all stopped spending our money because of it.
Television/media is the flashy thing from Men in Black. We watch it and believe what we are told, and never question it.
We're being played for fools.
