Tamiflu is AFAIK a rather old product, and it is very likely that many flu variants have developed immunity to it, mostly from over prescription and poor patient compliance.

Here in SA we have TB as a major health problem, and a rising number of cases are resistant to the initial drug regime, and only respond poorly to higher cost drugs. Some cases are almost totally resistant to all drugs. This was bred because people will not continue the course of treatment for the full 6 months, and either stop taking the drugs when they feel well, can't afford the taxi fare to get the drugs ( and the 2 day wait at our infamous public health care facilities for such), get the wrong meds ( paracetemol instead of anything, because that is all there is in the hospital) or the hospital has no stocks.

From what I see, this flu kills very few people, and is very easily confused with seasonal flu. Those that die from it are also those most likely to die from "normal" flu - the very sick, the elderly or infirm and those with other disease that the flu overwhelms. The only others are those who did not do adequate rest with the flu, which is also dangerous. Your results may be different, but this flu here is seen as merely a risk, not a deadly danger as portrayed by the scare media. There are a lot of things more dangerous.

Is it possible that it can evolve further ?
