H1N1: Do you have it?50 sec read
Maybe your seasonal allergies are affecting you differently than they did last fall; maybe you’ve been sprayed with H1N1 via the coughs and sneezes of a germ-spreading co-worker; or maybe, you just don’t feel well. In an effort to help those who are concerned that they may be infected with H1N1, the Department of Health and Human Services has added an online self-evaluation to Flu.gov. This may be a better alternative than risking sitting next to someone who actually does have it (or some other contagious ailment) while sitting in your doctor’s waiting room.
In just a few questions, this Severity Assessment will let you know if you probably do or probably don’t have the flu and will offer you advice on getting further treatment.
Do you think this is an effective way of triaging flu victims?
