Longer recovery time from flu is not a virus mutation, say Mumbai doctors

Doctors in the city have observed that many patients diagnosed with influenza are taking an unusually long time to recover; however, experts have dismissed the possibility of a virus mutation After an unexpectedly long monsoon season this year, doctors in the city are stumped by the increasing number of patients diagnosed with influenza or flu, as many of the patients are taking an unusually long time to recover from symptoms of high fever, cough, cold and body aches. However, since none of the patients have tested positive for any monsoon-related diseases, it has raised a red flag about the possibility of a virus mutation.
