This is getting nowhere, so I am closing this thread.
I know you all have tried to be as civil about this conflicting issue. And I thank you all for it but the fact remains that this thread will only cause more discomfort.
For the record, I do not support flushing live fish. But I understand the OP's concern about her own health. Though she could have rehomed them . . . but how long will all that process take. Further she will have to handle the sick fish to rehome them. . . thus would have risked her own health further.
So please try to understand the OP's state of mind at the time.
Cowboy; thank you for taking the initiative to work out a sollution
