Over 99% of cases of influenza are caused by H1N1; therefore, when somebody comes down with the flu-like symptoms, it is assumed that the offending flu virus is the H1N1 flu virus. The H1N1 is our seasonal flu this year.
...my daughter & I were in the doctors office on October 20, 2009 and both were tested for the H1N1 virus. The test was quick and had a 15 minute wait time. We both have H1N1. We are on Tamaflu and off work & school for 5 days. My husband & son must also take Tamaflu as a precaution. We were not admitted to the hospital at any time. We both seem to be recovering fine.
