Flu: Can we fight off it?


Flu is a very contagious disease that generates an infection in the respiratory system of human beings.

It is a very contagious virus, since it is possible to transmit it from one person to another one through the saliva. If someone is sick with flu, he/she can infect others when speaking or  sneezing.

Time of treatment is between 7 and 10 days.


Differences between flu and a common cold:

If you are sick with flu you will normally have fever over 38 degrees for approximately 4 days, headaches, very strong muscular pains, strong cough, but you will not tend to have nasal secretions.
