“Cause for concern, but not for panic”.  That’s what the President of the United States said and I tend to agree.  I still do not believe that everyone needs a prescription for Tamiflu.  If you must travel abroad then we can consider it.  I prefer to wait and see what the next week will bring.  Most people with respiratory symptoms do not have the flu.  I’ve had a lot of emails and phone calls as you might imagine.  Call me if you have typical flu symptoms: Fever (typically 101 or greater), headache, bodyaches and a cough.  Gastrointestinal symptoms my be present, but are less common than the other symptoms with most strains of the flu.  If you’re sick, stay home.  Wash your hands after you’ve been out.  Turn off your TV.
