I had a similar experience with the swine flu and taking Tamiflu to reduce the ailments. I was 48yo and a smoker. I had one day of feeling like I was dying. Hubby brought me Tamiflu after work at 5:30p. By the evening I was feeling much better. BUT, the cough nagged on for nearly 2 months. I had extra hydrated and went through several bottles of Tussin DM Cough Syrup, in which I took only when I needed it. I think that was mistake. I should have regimented it as a prescription... like I am now for this current gurgling cough I've been battling this week, at age 57. Nothing I've done has ceased it for more than a few hours and I am sleeping for a few hours here and there. I'm seeing my doctor for an antibiotic. I'm taking yogurt and probiotics besides flushing every hour. So, I'm definitely hydrated.I had the misfortune to get the 2009 swine flu and I can't remember it fully but I think that it made me very tired but it was similar to a bad common cold.however the major difference is we had the antiviral agent Tamiflu to use against the swine flu but it doesn't seem to work against corvid-19.i can't really say for sure if Tamiflu helped against my swine flu as perhaps it would have gone by itself anyhow but it felt like I was doing something to battle it.i suppose if you have any Tamiflu to hand,not the sort of stuff you are likely to have lying around!, and you get corvid-19 it's worth a try, better than praying!
That's not true in terms of H1N1. The virus was first reported in two U.S. children in March 2009, but health officials have reported that it apparently infected people as early as January 2009 in Mexico. The outbreak was first identified in Mexico City on 18 March 2009; immediately after the outbreak was officially announced, Mexico notified the U.S. and World Health Organization, and within days of the outbreak Mexico City was "effectively shut down".The first case in China was known in late November 2019. But they didn't tell anybody until late December or mid January when they released the gnome sequence. So the virus has been spreading throughout the world since November.
H1N1 started in Mexico and quickly spread to the United States so the CDC had samples quickly from which they could sequenced the genome
