Nothing more than bed rest and plenty of fluids to treat the flu. But in some cases, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medication, such as oseltamivir (Tamiflu) or zanamivir (Relenza). If taken soon after you notice symptoms, these drugs may shorten your illness by a day or so and help prevent serious complications.
Today, influenza surveillance in Russia is managed within the framework of the Federal Influenza and ARI Centre (FIC) at the Research Institute of Influenza (RII), St. Petersburg, and the Centre of Influenza Ecology and Epidemiology (CIEE) at the D. I. Ivanovsky Research Institute of Virology (IVI), Moscow. Both institutions perform functions of the National Influenza Centres (NICs) involved into the WHO GISRS. Surveillance activities are conducted in collaboration with the national network of 59 Regional Base Labs (RBLs), 49 of which are assigned to RII and 10 to IVI. This network covers almost the entire territory of Russia and ensures efficient monitoring of virus circulation.
