Once it works its way through a population, and presumably picks up a resistance to Tamiflu (and assorted antivirals) where does it go and hide before cropping up the next year?

Does it survive outside of living hosts? Why do we not have kick ass antiviral medicines yet? Just what the damn hell is going on here?!
