Dear Juan,

Does the JAMA article say that there is no evidence for antivirals? (due to paywall I can not read it).

If that is the case (and in view of the dedicated website by the BMJ  http://www.bmj.com/tamiflu ) is it acceptable that Eurosurveillance publishes an article with in the abstract "Treating influenza with antivirals in addition to prevention with vaccination will be important."
