While emphasizing caution, the Surgeon General of the Army said there's no reason to be alarmed by the flu outbreak, because there are treatments available. "There is no cause for panic or alarm," wrote Lt. Gen. Eric B. Schoomaker, U.S. Army surgeon general in his blog. "Antiviral drugs are available in the event you become ill; and there are preventive measures you can take to stay healthy." The Army Medical Command recommends avoiding those who already have the flu, and washing your hands often.
