The Flu, also known as Influenza, is caused by the RNA virus which infects the respiratory tract of humans, birds and animals. It is highly contagious and causes symptoms such as fever, headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, sneezing and a cough. Worser symptoms can include:

  • Sore throat
  • Muscle ache
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Shortness of breath
  • Diarrhoea
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Dehydration
  • Death

Symptoms can last from one to two weeks depending on the individuals immune system and how strong it is to fight the virus.

What are the causes of Flu

Unfortunately, every year thousands die from the flu making it a severe illness that can also lead to pneumonia. The elderly are more susceptible to fatality as their immune system is compromised.

Flu is highly contagious and is passed as an airborne virus from person to person. Over time viral strains can alter slightly, making them resistant to antiviral drugs, which means new medications have to be produced to tackle newer strains. 

Treating Flu

Alongside the flu vaccine, it may be important for patients to take antiviral medications such as Tamiflu to control influenza. If the flu is not proactively controlled to prevent and mitigate the symptoms it can cause severe complications and even death. By staying on top of the yearly flu vaccine and taking effective antiviral medication you can prevent the risk of the virus spreading inside the respiratory tract.
