The following video resources were developed to cover H5N1 avian influenza, however much of this content is also applicable to novel H1N1 influenza.
Influenza viruses are enveloped viruses and are susceptible to a wide variety of disinfectants including sodium hypochlorite, 70% ethanol, oxidizing agents, quaternary ammonium compounds, aldehydes (formalin, glutaraldehyde, farmaldehyde), phenols, acids, povidone-iodine and lipid solvents. They can also be inactivated by heat of 56°C (133°F) for a minimum of 60 minutes (or higher temperatures for shorter periods), as well as by ionizing radiation or low pH (pH 2).
