I live in the gulf & here since lab results take 5 days (only govenment labs are authorised to do these test here), doctors are suggesting to start taking tamiflu when they see any doubtful symtons or when they know that the patient has been in the surrounding of another similar (H1N1) patient. Since spread is fast in schools, how safe is it to give to children, without wating for test. Which is worse a) waiting for results for 5 days? or b) taking tamiflu when you probably wouldn't have needed it in the first place?
