What is the flu?
 
Influenza (the Flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza virus. Flu virus is spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing of people with the flu. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death.

What are the signs and symptoms of the flu?
 
Typical influenza illness includes fever (usually 100°F to 103°F in adults and often even higher in children) and respiratory symptoms, such as cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, as well as headache, muscle aches and extreme fatigue. Although nausea, vomiting and diarrhea can sometimes accompany influenza infection, especially in children, these symptoms are rarely the primary symptoms. The term "stomach flu" is a misnomer that is sometimes used to describe gastrointestinal illnesses caused by organisms other than influenza viruses. Most people who get the flu recover completely in 1 to 2 weeks, but some people develop serious and potentially life­threatening medical complications, such as pneumonia.

     • Clean -properly wash your hands frequently
