Continued emergence and changing epidemiology of oseltamivir-resistant influenza A (H1N1) 2009 virus, United Kingdom, winter 2010/11 Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • During the winter period 2010/11 27 epidemiologically unlinked, confirmed cases of oseltamivir-resistant influenza A (H1N1) 2009 virus infection have been detected in multiple, geographically dispersed settings. Three of these cases were in community settings, with no known exposure to oseltamivir. This suggests possible onward transmission of resistant strains and could be an indication of a possibility of changing epidemiology of oseltamivir- resistant influenza A (H1N1) 2009 virus.
