symptoms are mostly the same for all types of virus. it's hard to predict whether you have h1n1 virus. Only laboratory tests can do that.

The only definite sign is a laboratory test. There is no way, based on symptoms alone, to distinguish the h1n1 virus from the standard flu virus or even from a really bad cold. But if it's mostly in your nose (sniffles/runny nose/sneezing), it's not the flu (either type). If you're concerned, call your local hospital or health center, and they will tell you where to go to be tested.

Things you should know about human influenza viruses:
• They spread through infected droplets from breathing passages.
• Droplets are expelled by talking, spitting, coughing, sneezing.
• The droplets spread about 1 meter (3 feet) from the infected person, either directly to other people or indirectly through hands and other surfaces.
• The viruses can live for several hours on hard surfaces, or on cloth and paper.
• If healthy people touch infected hands, doorknobs, keyboards, telephones, etc., they can infect themselves
by touching mouths, noses or eyes.
• Sometimes the viruses can spread through the air.
• An infected person is most likely to spread the virus when he or she has fever and a cough.
• It is possible that an infected person will spread the virus a day before showing signs of illness.
