What mutated H1N1 might look like

If it mutated, isn't it no longer H1N1?

I heard 4 had it in North Carolina, too.

The flu bug does this ALL the time. Nothing new about this at all. It's just the media yet again reporting things that are normal, yet must be made in to a headline.

We are not wise or strong enough to make these decisions alone. That is why we trust the media and the government. They are here to guide us.

2009-11-21 01:07:56 PM  
I'm more afraid of the drug resistant version (new window), plus I'm staying with someone who works at said hospital
 
2009-11-21 01:08:17 PM  
There's enough bs fearmongering about this illness that is less harmful than the flu as it is.

Let's keep it off Fark.

What about the mutated strain in North Carolina that is resistant to Tamiflu?

I think the media should stick to using the word "mutant" for situations where it is relevant or actually matters. By the definition this article uses, every single person on earth is a mutant. OH NOES IVE SAID TOO MUCH

Can we at least agree to pronounce it the HINI as "HInee?" As in bend over and kiss yours good-bye?
 
2009-11-21 01:20:01 PM  
Yes, by all means, that article justifies panicking about mutated H1N1.

Except for that little part stating there's no real significance to the mutation, which is to say, the entire article.

"The H1N1 vaccine and antiviral drugs used against H1N1 are effective with the mutation, WHO said."
+
Dr. Geir Stene-Larsen, the institute's director, said the mutated virus has been found in only three of 70 victims of the disease.
+
"Based on what we know so far, it seems that the mutated virus does not circulate in the population, but might be a result of spontaneous changes which have occurred in these three patients," Stene-Larsen said.
+
"There is no indication that this change in the virus is of any importance for the effect of the vaccine or the effect of antiviral treatment."

that's like 60% of the article
