    ""But after he was already in therapy, we re-send the sample to the test and then we get a positive laboratory findings, which, despite treatment showed that the virus is present in the body. This means that the mutated virus and seem to become resistant to Tamiflu "said Ivic. "



    It seems that the cited mutation was related to Tamiflu resistance - the presence of the virus in a sample taken during the treatment with Tamiflu.

    But after several worldwide G/E/... mutations, of which several areas are in the European cont. countries, some even bordering,
    the "other" mutations probably will, if already not, influx all the areas, and world wide.

    Yes, it is not an official press release or study, so handle with care.

    odd, Dutchy. Usually it's the other way around. Testing positive, and then negative after so many days (at least in Vietnam it's that way).

    It seems the writer is mixing up a mutation related to Tamiflu resistance and a mutation related to... , well related to something we don't know yet.
