I am sure that is what she meant. It simply shortened her flu and thus made her non contagious. However she did say 24 hours. Not only is her sister pregnant but she is as well and is in her first trimester, so I know she is worried about herself as well. I think that is pretty much what I was trying to say.

And the facts are against everything you say she told you.

If you are convinced she would never knowingly endanger y'all, the only option left is a hole in her education. Scary bc now this misinformation is being disseminated, both by you and her.
Oh my, I guess your education was better than hers, is that what you are saying? To even inply or suggest she would diliberately expose her family to a condition is a personal insult.

Tamiflu does not do what the op suggests.

The decrease in viral shedding is variable and inconsistent and decreases have not necessarily been demonstrated to decrease transmission.
And certainly not in 24 hours.

Um, yes.
My education is vastly superior and I am in fact currently in the presence of two other physicians and three PAs who are laughing at this right now.
Sort of in an alarmed way.
