CDC Recommendations for antiviral treatment of people already infected with H1N1 Swine Flu

With Swine Flu cases continuing to surprise epidemiologists by spreading during the normally dormant summer months, no one is quite sure what to expect this fall.  Will the disease re-emerge from a host population in a more virulent form that lodges deeper in the respiratory tract, as the more deadly pandemic flu strains of the past century have done, or is it simply mutating in minor steps while in circulation during this abnormal summer pattern?  There is substantial debate, and some experts are definitely concerned about what the fall may bring.  With that in mind, I thought I’d offer this bit of information about treatments for people already infected with H1N1.
