If you are seriously worried about urine or semen being on your keyboard at work you need to quit right away and find another job.

Flu virus can live two weeks on a bare surface, AIDS lives 24 hours. Cold viruses live about 3 days. Your best bet is to carry one of those bottles of alcohol gel with you to rub on your hands.

It depends on what kind of disease it it contaminated with.
