H1N1 Swine Flu on hard, non-porous surfaces!
Disinfectants that are effective against seasonal flu (Influenza A) on
hard, non-porous surfaces will most likely work against Swine Influenza as well.
[The] EPA believes, based on available scientific
information, that the currently registered influenza A virus products will be effective against the 2009-H1N1
flu strain and other influenza A virus strains on hard, non-porous surfaces.

What is H1N1 flu?
2009 H1N1 (sometimes called “swine flu”) is a new
influenza virus causing illness in people. This new virus was first detected in people in the
United States in April 2009. This
virus is spreading from person-to-person worldwide, probably in much the same way that regular seasonal
influenza viruses spread. On June 11, 2009, the World Health OrganizationExternal Web Site Icon (WHO) signaled that a pandemic of
2009 H1N1 flu was underway.
What should I do to keep from getting the
Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and
water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.*
What is the best technique for washing my hands to avoid
getting the flu?
Washing your hands often will help protect you from
germs. CDC recommends that when you wash your hands -- with soap and warm water -- that you wash for 15 to 20
seconds. When soap and water are not available, alcohol-based disposable hand wipes or gel sanitizers may be
used.* You can find them in most supermarkets
and drugstores. If using gel, rub your hands until the gel is dry. The gel doesn't need water to work; the
alcohol in it kills the germs on your hands.
What about disinfectants?
The H1N1 Influenza virus is a close cousin to the Influenza A virus that causes
common flu. Viruses can be spread when a person touches a contaminated surface and then touches his or her eyes,
nose, or mouth. We know that some viruses and bacteria can live 2 hours or longer on surfaces like cafeteria
tables, doorknobs, and desks. According to the U.S.
EPA, disinfectants that are effective against seasonal flu
(Influenza A) on hard, non-porous surfaces will most likely work against H1N1 Influenza as well.
