H1N1 flu has a 22 to 33 percent chance of infection, much higher than the 5 to 15 percent chance of infection for the common cold. The best way to prevent the spread of the disease is to set up an effective early-diagnosis system and to urge people to quickly inform heath authorities when they show symptoms. The government must distribute ample amounts of "diagnostic kits," allowing clinics and hospitals to quickly verify H1N1 infection by testing mucus or saliva samples from patients. Schools and businesses should also tell their students and employees to alert health officials should they develop a high fever.

In virology, superinfection is the process by which a cell, that has previously been infected by one virus, gets coinfected with a different strain of the virus, or another virus at a later point in time. Viral superinfections of serious conditions can lead to resistant strains of the virus, which may prompt a change of treatment. For example, an individual superinfected with two separate strains of the HIV virus may contract a strain that is resistant to antiretroviral treatment. The combined infection has also been shown to reduce the overall effectiveness of the immune response.
In medicine, superinfection is an infection following a previous infection, especially when caused by microorganisms that are resistant or have become resistant to the antibiotics used earlier.
Superinfection, according to Dorland's illustrated medical dictionary, is a condition produced by sudden growth of a type of bacteria, different from the original offenders in a wound or lesion under treatment.
