Questions

1. Are the lab test for suspected Swine flu specific for A ( H1N1) or is it for H1N1 common flu?

H1N1 is not seasonal flu but a new type of flu. See CDC site on this...as below.


2.How long for a specific test for A(H1N1)? Is there a rapid test?
The commercially available RIDTs discussed in this document can provide results within 30 minutes or less.


Seehttp://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/guidance/rapid_testing.htm
