Re: Worrying about H1N1 Infection

Hi John,

Welcome to the boards. As far as your computer goes, simply wipe it down with an antibacterial cloth, and you will be fine. The virus needs a warm moist environment to survive.

My experience with H1N1 is quite different than harkas. When my son became ill, starting with a sore throat, aches, coughing, and running a fever over 101.5, I took him right into emergency. He was treated with iv fluids, pain medication, and was there most of the night.

I was treated as well, because we are both in high risk groups...he as a child, and me, as a person suffering from other medical issues. Influenza is nothing to take lightly...

I would unpack that computer, and enjoy it.
