Abstract We describe a patient with confirmed novel swine-like A(H1N1) influenza, who had daily swab detection under oseltamivir therapy. Nasal shedding remained positive for 2 days and became negative on day 3. These are the first available data on kinetics of viral shedding of this novel virus under antiviral therapy.
