Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to Alleviation of Symptoms in Participants Randomized to Baloxavir or Placebo [ Time Frame: Initiation of study treatment up to Day 14 ]

    Participants assessed the severity of seven influenza-associated symptoms (cough, sore throat, headache, nasal congestion, feverishness or chills, muscle or joint pain, and fatigue) on a 4-point scale (with 0 indicating no symptoms, 1 mild symptoms, 2 moderate symptoms, and 3 severe symptoms).

    Time to alleviation of symptoms was defined as the time from the start of the study treatment to the time when all seven influenza-related symptoms were assessed by the participant as absent (0) or mild (1) for at least 21.5 hours.

    Time to alleviation of symptoms was analyzed using the Kaplan-Meier (KM) method; participants who did not experience alleviation of symptoms were censored at the last observation time point.
