Flu Treatment

NPR's Joanne Silberner reports on a new treatment that slows the spread of the flu. The drug is inhaled at the first sign of flu symptoms. It decreases the severity of the flu in the patient who uses the drug. Because these people cough and sneeze less, their contacts have a lower chance of contracting the flu.
