Today's LA Times has an article on the effect that H1N1 influenza has had on the pork industry even though pigs haven't been part of the pandemic. On the other hand, here in Virginia, a flock of turkeys has been found to be infected with H1N1. Also in Virginia, 2 patients have been diagnosed with tamiflu-resistant H1N1, as have 2 patients at Johns Hopkins Hospital. And lastly, H1N1 has been diagnosed in a cheetah in a California zoo.
