I am not paniced about this, but I am preparing just in case. Does chlorine destroy viruses like this one? Does boiling water treat for viruses well? Also, what common over the counter disinfectant works well on viruses? Just for cleaning household surfaces and possibly contaminated clothes/bedding.

Even if nothing significant pans out of this, this is sure a good practice run of what we need to do, need to know, and what we forgot we needed. My 1st good scare as a newbie on this besides economic conerns. My weakest aspect is medical in knowledge and resources.

Chlorine/bleach should kill all virii. Lysol is good for surfaces, alcohol is better. Boil linens and clothing, as this should also kill virii. Then there is the old standby that cleanses all - fire. Not my first recommendation

Good questions, and good luck.

I always make my own cleaning supply. It is safe, simply, cheap, smells good and works great (multipurpose, except maybe wood furniture). I don't know about a flu virus, but it will kill salmonella and other wicked bacteria. It's filtered water, peroxide a few drops of GSE (Grapefruit Seed Extract) and my choice of essential oils.

I have read about the 1918 flu, and one paramount thing that should be noted is how important hydration is during any illness (not food intake, fluid intake!) Here is the best link I have found as far as treatments for this flu including: Iodine, Magnesium, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sunshine, Vitamin C are listed (for Vit C I'm a big believer in good 'ole Florida oranges Also Garlic, Green Tea, Cat's Claw, Tumeric, etc. It's a good read.

Also explains what to avoid which was most interesting to me personally. It included the following and more: Elderberry Juice, Chlorella & Spirulina, Honey, Chocolate and Echinacea.

I also would really, really encourage anyone contemplating Tamiflu to at least educate yourself on the possible side effects.
