In brief: Support
Most of the treatment is supportive, meaning supplemental oxygen if needed, or even mechanical ventilatory support if respiratory failure.
It is recommended patients be treated with the anti-influenza drug "tamiflu" if the present with symptoms early enough. Other measures of non specific support may be needed, IV fluids etc.. Depending on the severity of illness.

In brief: Supportive care
Anti-influenza drugs may be used early in the infection, but generally treatment consists of supportive care and, prevention/treatment of secondary infections.
