About Influenza (Flu)

About Influenza:
The flu is a contagious respiratory illness that caused by more than one type of influenza virus strains. While most healthy people will recover from the flu, it can cause mild to severe illness and in some cases lead to death. Certain individuals are at a high risk of developing complications from the flu, including the elderly, children, those with chronic medical conditions (e.g. asthma or diabetes), and those who are immunocompromised.
