    Tamiflu has been found ineffective against 99 percent of the flu strains that will strike Americans this season.

    Last year only 11 percent of flu strains were resistant to Tamiflu. “'It’s quite shocking,' Dr. Kent A. Sepkowitz, director of infection control at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, told the (New York) Times. 'We’ve never lost an antimicrobial this fast. It blew me away.'”

    Not good.

    Sorry, TSP. Didn't work. Still coughing and congested.

    I applaud your valiant effort, though.
