Dr. Gupta -- You Give Me Fever

10/9/2009 2:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Our cameraman lathered on the hand sanitizer before talking to former swine flu patient Dr. Sanjay Gupta -- but according to the good doc, pouring on the Purell wouldn't totally keep the pig virus at bay anyway.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Click to watch
In Malibu last night, Gupta gave us the 411 on H1N1 and celeb infectee Brian Littrell, saying dude probably wasn't contagious yesterday when he flew in from NY -- because the Backstreet Boy told The Gup his fever has passed when he went airborne.

FYI -- our photog who shot Littrell at LAX is now sick with flu-like symptoms. No word on how the guy who shot this footage is feeling ... yet.

If your photog is sick today with flu like symptoms, it most likely is NOT due to contact with Littrel. It takes 3-7 days after contracting the flu for symptoms to manifest.

Hope your photog gets well soon though.

It's a good thing you guys didn't run into Dr. OZ. He would give you a rectal exam right in the street.

H1N1 does not have a 3-7 day incubation period, it's MUCH shorter than that, 1-4 days according to the CDC. Make note of that, it's as short as ONE day.

Scientists say that a person can be contagious for as much as 7-10 days after they become ill. It's very very rude and irresponsible for a person to fly only 24 hours after their fever has subsided.
