Quote from indigo girl
I would like to see some viral sequences released from some of these kids. Maybe they have been, and I just have not heard about it yet.
That might give us some clues as to why this strain is so virulent. I know that this information exists in some data base somewhere. Is it too much to ask that it be shared with the public?
They did a nasal swab on my daughters and it was positive for Influenza type A. They were put on Tamiflu, but unable to finish it because they had a reaction to it. My husband took it, but he still ended up with type A Influenza also.
I know for a fact that there are a lot of people testing positive for it because the lab that I work in is fairly small and they do in-house testing. One day last week, I hear all day long "Another positive influenza over here".
I thought that all the positive tests had to be reported and avaliable to the general public.
I would like to go ahead and get my girls a flu shot now (it's never too late), but they still have what seems to be lingering mild cold symptoms and I want to wait until they're completely better.
