The CDC recommends fast treatment with Tamiflu or Relenza for anyone hospitalized with a flu-like illness. They also advise prompt treatment at the first sign of symptoms for those at high risk for serious complications, including pregnant women, children younger than 5, and people with certain chronic conditions like asthma and heart disease.
"Tamiflu is still considered effective. This is just a reminder we need to be cautious with these drugs," Moore said.
The North Carolina cases are reported in Thursday's issue of a CDC publication, Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
