http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2009/09/11/2683642.htm?site=newsA Perth man has contracted the first known Australian case of swine flu that is resistant to the main antiviral drug Tamiflu.
The 38-year-old man, with a weakened immune system, developed a resistant strain of the virus after initially responding well to the drug.
The Health Department says there is no evidence the virus has spread to other people and it does not pose a risk to the wider public.
