“Get­ting plenty of fluids and rest is your main pri­or­ity so avoid the of­fice, which shouldn’t be too hard given that you’re prob­a­bly feel­ing as though you’ve been hit by a bus,” Macart­ney says. “You may also need to take parac­eta­mol to help with the fever and dis­com­fort that comes with hav­ing the flu.” Peo­ple who have other se­ri­ous med­i­cal con­di­tions and any­one who’s been hos­pi­talised as a re­sult of the flu may be given Tam­i­flu, an an­tivi­ral med­i­ca­tion that can shorten the du­ra­tion of symp­toms.
