US : 4 people found with anti-viral resistant flu in Delaware

Article from WGMD News Radio :

" Four people have been found with cases of anti-viral resistant influenza – three of them in Sussex County – a 2 month old boy who was briefly hospitalized, a 7 year old girl and a 45 year old woman who died in February.

She was the state’s second death from the flu this year. Also a 28 year old New Castle County man was briefly hospitalized. This means that the usual methods of treating the flu are not effective for these people, however there are other methods of treatment.


Continued laboratory testing of flu cases at the request of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirms four additional Delaware cases of antiviral-resistant influenza for the 2010 – 2011 flu season. This brings the total number of resistant flu cases to 10.

  • a 2-month-old boy from Sussex County, briefly hospitalized

  • a 7-year-old girl from Sussex County, did not require hospitalization.

  • a 45-year-old woman from Sussex County, who died Feb. 24.

  • This was the second flu death of the 2010-2011 flu season, and was announced Feb. 25 a 28-year-old man from New Castle County, briefly hospitalized."
