AS PER YOU IT IS ALREADY CONTAMINATED WATER AND THEY HAD MONO SYMPTOMS. FEVER, SORE THROAT, FATIGUE AND ABDOMINAL PAIN ARE COMMON IN THIS REGARD. IT IS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT IT. YOU GARGLE YOUR MOUTH AND THROAT WITH LISTERINE SOLUTION TWICE OR THRICE A DAY AND TRY TO BE IN FREE AIR TO PREVENT ITS VIRULENCE. IN CASE THE SYMPTOMS ARISE TAKE ARYTHROMYCIN 250MG TWICE A DAY AND ACECLOFENAC IS TO BE TAKEN ACCORDING TO THE NEED WHICH WILL RELIEVE FROM THROAT PAIN. NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT IT.
