    If it's similar to human flu I'm guessing you get hit pretty quickly by the symptoms.

    What differentiates swine flu from a "mild case of the flu", then?

    apparently your joints hurt a bit as well. but aside from that, they're pretty much the same.

    Last night a guest came to me with the key to his safety deposit box, he was wearing a mouthcap so I asked him why and he told me his wife and son have the flu and that he had to go to the hospital to test himself as well. I guess I could've expected it soon enough, I'm in contact with thousands of different people everyday. I just hope it won't take over the entire hotel/disney.

    Its not airborne, its transmitted through direct contact that's why it is advisable to have an alcohol and avoid crowd. Influenza A(H1N1) has similar sympotoms with other flu virus but if you got this Flu for more than 7 days..it is advisable to see a doctor especially if you have been to countries which are affected w/ Influenze A(H1N1). Again, its not Swine Flu anymore but its called Influenza A(H1N1) :D
