Antibiotics are useless against influenza viruses. Tamiflu and Relenza are supposedly useful in combating flu viruses but not enough information is
known yet about this new strain to say whether either of those drugs would offer sufficient help to the people in the highest mortality rate group,
which is ages 24 to 45 because a stronger immune system attacks the virus so voraciously that it literally drowns the infected person by secreating
far too much mucus into the lungs. So far both antiviral medications may be of help but a variation of this swine flu, the human H1N1 human flu, is
already resistant to Tamiflu , leading scientists to believe the new strain will become resist too. Best bet, stay out of places that are crowded,
wash your hands frequently, use hand sanitizer if you can't wash your hands, and pray it doesn't become a pandemic.
