The symptoms of H1N1 flu in people appear to be similar to the symptoms of regular seasonal flu and include fever or chills and cough or sore throat. In addition, symptoms of flu can include runny nose, body aches, headache, tiredness, diarrhea, or vomiting. New Yorkers experiencing severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, should seek healthcare and treatment. Otherwise, the New York City Department of Health recommends at-home care.
H1N1 flu cannot be transmitted from eating pork or pork products.
