The flu is a common name for the influenza virus. The influenza virus infects the respiratory track and is spread from person to person via coughing or sneezing. The flu should be taken seriously since it is a major cause of illness and death in the US and leads to approximately 20,000 deaths and 110,000 hospitalizations each year (CDC- Flu Season 2000-2001).
