No fever may not mean no H1N1 flu

[Minnesota Public Radio, October 28, 2009] It appears a lot of people with the H1N1 flu do not experience a fever, and the absence of a fever could mean they are not taking enough precautions to prevent transmitting the virus to others. Fever and flu go hand-in-hand - at least that's the case most of the time with seasonal flu. But some doctors say the H1N1 virus doesn't trigger a fever in many patients. Allina Infection Control practioner Cindy Larson said flu symptoms, minus fever, are being seen in Minnesota. See the story on MPR's website.
