The flu is a highly infective respiratory infection that is self-limiting and usually last 2-7 days. It make you feel…….well let’s be honest…..CRAP.
It regularly gets mixed up with a common cold or “man flu” however is far more sever. It is caused by the Influenza virus which has many strains.
It is not any worse in the high risk groups such as the very young / old or patients with certain medical conditions, however it causes more complications for these groups. These groups sometimes end up in hospital or indeed dying as a result of the Flu infection causing complications.
