I've tried googling this but came up empty. How long does an individual flu virus live in the air after someone sneezes or coughs it out of their lungs? Is there any kind of a "chance of infection chart" that graphs room size next to the chance of catching the flu?
The reason I ask is that I've recently realized that I haven't had the flu in several years. The only thing that I can think of that has changed is that I don't go to as many meetings as I used to. But I work in an office with three other people with dividers seperating us, and both my coworkers get sick all the time. One girl was out with the flu last week and just back today. The other guy is out right now. Yet I never get sick anymore.
So, is this a statistical fluke or is the flu virus not able to survive long enough to pass over the dividers?
