Whenever any of above symptoms start, go to nearest Government approved laboratories for checkup and testing for H1N1 infection. Most private laboratories check for influenza A and B virus infection. Such test kits are not highly specific or sensitive to catch H1N1 virus infection in time.

The antiviral drugs (oseltamivir and zanamivir) which are highly effective against H1N1 infection are available from Government sources and must not be used indiscriminately as it may cause resistance against virus.

If any person tests positive, all household members and close contacts should to be treated simultaneously and kept under watch for seven days, the time taken to build up body immunity.
