Swine Flu Update

Here's a news update about Swine Flu in Canada.

Canada has recorded its first case of Tamiflu-resistant H1N1 virus, in a Quebec man who had been given the drug to prevent infection.

The 60-year-old man was given the antiviral medication after his son fell ill with the pandemic virus. But he managed to come down with the flu anyway.[Source]

Tamilflu is said to be the best treatment for swine flu. It will be a serious problem if Tamilflu-resistant swine flu virus spread like a normal swine flu virus do.
