Protein-containing liquids sugar broth, milk, allantoic fluid are considerably more favorable for preserving the viability of the influenza virus in an aerosol than distilled water and saline solutions physiological saline solution, phosphate buffer mixture. Native saliva occupies an intermediate position. The results of determining the influenza virus in an aerosol when liquids which are favorable for the preservation of the virus are used as the spray fluid are close to the theoretical calculations.
