... but I didn't expect it to be so soon.

 

Now we have a strain of the virus that has mutated and become immunization proof.

 

We just can't help fking with things... and fking things up.

 

I'm sometimes surprised that our species has survived as long as we have. :001_Thank_You5:

Hong Kong reports Tamiflu-resistant swine flu case

August 15th, 2009

 

Hong Kong health authorities have reported the first local case of Tamiflu-resistant swine flu in the southern Chinese territory.

 

The Centre for Health Protection (CPH) said Friday that the case involved a 40-year-old female resident of a home for the disabled.

 

CPH controller Dr Thomas Tsang said the woman started taking Tamiflu on July 15 after 21 people at the home fell ill and was later confirmed to be infected with swine flu.

 

Laboratory tests available Friday showed the virus sample from the woman, who has since recovered, was resistant to Tamiflu, the main anti-viral flu drug.

 

Describing the case as an isolated one, Dr Tsang said there was no sign of Tamiflu-resistant flu spreading at the home.

 

Early last month Hong Kong announced it had detected a strain of the H1N1 virus that was resistant to Tamiflu involving a 16-year-old girl who arrived from San Francisco. She was later discharged from hospital.

 

The health department said Friday there had been a total of 6,640 cases of swine flu in the city.

 

When Hong Kong discovered its first swine flu case in early May, health authorities quarantined about 300 guests and staff at a hotel where the carrier, a Mexican national, had briefly stayed.

 

In June, authorities ordered all primary schools in the city to be closed for two weeks after the first cluster of local swine flu cases was found.

There was a story on the BBC news last week that giving Tamiflu to children may be counter productive.

Does it really matter i this virus is immune to a drug not specifically designed to attack the virus? Swine flu is less deadly than normal flu, and you only have to worry if you have other complications. bird flu, swine flu, Hiv/Siv(simian immuno virus- what hiv is called in monkeys) any one else think the animals are trying to kill us for fucking about with their planet? haha

I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.

I used to go missing a lot...Miss Canada, Miss United Kingdom, Miss World.

I've been clinically dead twice in my life... or is this my third life? :Question:

 

It's a long story. Buy me a drink some time and I'll tell you.

I'm afraid it does.

 

Every time we develop a drug the virus/bacteria adapt. They are constantly evolving organisms, much like us, just at a highly accelerated rate. A trait evolves in the human race over hundreds of thousands of years, this takes the space of a decade or so for these simple organisms.

 

The use of simple penicillin over the last few decades, and patients ignorance about completing a full course, has lead to hospitals world wide being assaulted by golden staph and other bacteria that are completely resistant to it.

 

I even read of one idiotic group in the UK that were trying to genetically manipulate chickens so that anti-biotic's could be formed in the eggs they laid. Did not ONE of these morons consider that they could potentially be giving the Bird Flu virus it's biggest leg up it could hope for?

 

You are correct that at this current point in time the Swine flu is less deadly than normal influenza. But that could change very rapidly if the pharmaceutical companies get to make millions off a media fueled frenzy over what is currently just a case of the damn flu.

 

My point was that if we keep fking with things we do not fully understand, we will be the cause of our own destruction.

 

But that's OK... the earth will just shrug us off as a failed experiment and continue on with the next species. :GoldenSmile1:

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
