For safety, I would throw it out. Never can be too careful, but if you chose to use it again, I think that would be alright,
Unless you can use something to completely sterilize that brush, I wouldn't risk it.

No, its fine if you just cleanse it with a some alcohol.
Most brush cleansers actually have alcohol in them anyways.
So, there is no need to throw it away...I promise ya!
But, do not continue to use your liners, mascaras, or eye shadows, that made any type of contact with your eyes. Hope this helps ;)

although antibacterial soap shouldl suffice, it is better to be safe than sorry when it comes to getting pink eye (even if it is viral). I had viral as well from a cold, and I still threw out anything that had come into contact with my eyes for the previous few days, since it may have been in your eyes prior to actually showing symptoms

If you washed the brush thoroughly with a anti-bacterial or disinfecting soap it should have killed all the bacteria.

Hot soapy water should do the trick. No need to throw out the brish. And if you really want to play it safe throw the brush in the diswasher, it will disinfect it. It may become discoloured but atleast you don't need to buy another one.

You should definitely throw away. In fact throw away all of your eye make up. You might not have gotten it from this brush, you could have gotten it from, eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow... anything that touched your eyes. You should change out your mascara every 3 months and your eye makeup every 6 months.
