If flu is confirmed,please take antiviral medication Zanamivir.
Sometimes,it takes 2 weeks for complete recovery.
In some people,weakness will persist for few days more depending upon the severity.
Please add Anti inflammatory drug,antibiotic to prevent secondary bacterial infection.
For energy,please take B complex with minerals and antioxidant combination capsule.
Please take protein diet.
Wish you good health and speedy recovery
