What are the symptoms of H1N1... and how are they different from the common cold?

How can you help stop the spread?

Help Stop the Spread of H1N1

I don't know if this is accurate or not but several different sources seem to be giving us this information so I thought I would pass it on... some say the HINI outbreak will peak this week...some say it will break out again in January... I am not a doctor and have no idea but the chart is interesting so I thought I would pass it on... it makes some sense... as always wash your hands and stay home if you are sick and as we do in my office LYSOL!

Well at least I now know it wasn't H1N1 that got me down last week.  Just a severe cold.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi Randy, great reblog, thank you! I carry around a HUGE thingy of disinfectant wipes these days. I usually am not so worried, but this time around I am being very cautious. Have that grandson plus a daughter who is pregnant to worry about. I am sure my husband had the flu early this month. Poor guy, I actually left the house and stayed with one of my daughters! I threw in what he needed and ran away every day, wiping myself down with those disinfectant wipes. Just call me MONK!

Andrea ~ LOL! Great visual image of your anti-flu-wipes. I caught the flu about 20 years ago, along with my wife and 2 sons - all at the same time. What a miserable bunch we were!  Not fun.  Hope those wipes do their magic for you!   :))

This is good to know. I had no idea of any differences in the originating symptoms of the deadly vs the normal viruses.
