attention being focused on preventing and treating the flu

There's a lot of attention being focused on preventing and treating the flu...due to the severe flu season this year.

This year's flu vaccine doesn't directly cover the newly emerging A/Fujian strain. The vaccine still helps, but it's probably only about 70% effective.

Antivirals are an alternative. Amantadine and Tamiflu can be used for treatment OR prevention...Relenza is only for treatment.
