The Flu: What is it?

Influenza, commonly known as ‘The Flu’, is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. These infect the nose, throat, and lungs. The flu viruses are believed to be spread via airborne droplets produced when infected individuals cough, sneeze, or talk. The virus may also be transmitted through touching a surface that is contaminated with the virus, then touching one’s own mouth, nose, or possibly eyes. Influenza is a more serious illness than the common cold, and there is a potential that medical attention may be needed. Complications of the flu can include bacterial pneumonia, ear infection, sinus infection, and the worsening of chronic conditions such as heart failure, asthma, or diabetes.
