  • The symptoms of 2009 H1N1 flu virus in people include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea. People may be infected with the flu, including 2009 H1N1 and have respiratory symptoms without a fever. Severe illnesses and deaths have occurred as a result of illness associated with this virus.

  • Similar to the regular flu only much more severe respiratory symptoms. My boss actually as it right now so we've been working via the phone and she just sounds horrible. It started out as just a fever in the morning but she said she felt fine. Then throughout the day literally within maybe 4 hours she just got horrible. Her fever went up to 108 and didn't go below 103 for 3 days. She couldn't talk without coughing a really deep, hoarse cough. She had it bad.
