Fears over mutating swine flu virus that could render vaccine useless

By Mail On Sunday Reporter

A research team has hurriedly been re-formed to investigate whether the swine flu virus has started to mutate in a way that will render the vaccine ineffective.

Senior Government scientists have already discovered slight genetic mutations in the H1N1 virus.

They are checking whether this is causing some people to be more severely affected, although there is no evidence at this stage to suggest the changes would stop the vaccine working or prevent the anti-viral drug Tamiflu from being effective.

Snip.

I still think this bug is meant to fight the H5N1 which would probably turn us back to a neolithic age if/when it jumps.
