Italy HA Homology to two TamiFlu-Resistant Asian Specimens

Italy130 is an exact nucleotide match on segment 4 (Hemagglutinin/H1) with the TamiFlu-Resistant A/Hunan/SWL3 from China, with 21 North American sequences and with 1 sequence from Sao Paulo, Brasil.  Furthermore, Italy130 is a 1700/1701 nucleotide match to TamiFlu-Resistant A/Yamaguchi/22 from Japan.

No segment 6 (Neuraminidase/N1) is published  for any of the 6 Italian sequences released today, including Italy130; ergo, TamiFlu-Resistance cannot be invalidated by data. 

Absence of data is apparently being commissioned as the new art form?
