Anyone who can write 'antibiotic resistant flu virus' as though they 
believe it really needs to read some elementary books about disease.

Here's a clue: No flu viruses are treatable with antibiotics. In some cases 
antibiotics may be useful for flu patients to treat secondary bacterial 
infections, but they are not effective against viruses.
