Flu Symptoms & Treatment

Three types of flu viruses: A, B, and C are present. Type A and B cause the annual influenza epidemics that have up to 20% of the population sniffling, aching, coughing, and running high fevers. Type C also causes flu; however, type C flu symptoms are much less severe. The flu is linked to between 3,000 and 49,000 deaths and 200,000 hospitalizations each year in the United States. The seasonal flu vaccine was created to try to avert these epidemics. Ebola share some common symptoms, such as fever, headache, fatigue and aches and pains. But there are big differences, too. Influenza causes cough, sore throat and runny nose, while Ebola does not. Ebola leads to vomiting and diarrhea within three to six days, severe weakness and stomach pain, as well as unexplained bleeding and bruising. There is lots of difference between flu and flu like illness. Influenza-like illness (ILI), also known as acute respiratory infection and flu-like syndrome/symptoms, is a medical diagnosis of possible influenza or other illness causing a set of common symptoms. The causes of influenza-like illness range from benign self-limited illnesses such as gastroenteritis, rhinoviral disease, and influenza, to severe, sometimes life-threatening, diseases such as meningitissepsis, and leukemia.

Flu virus is an antigenically and genetically diverse group of viruses belongs to family Orthomyxoviridae that contains a negative-sense, single-stranded, segmented RNA genome. Mostly, Influenza A and B viruses causes of influenza-like illness, but other pathogens like influenza C viruses, parainfluenza viruses, respiratory syncytial viruses, and Mycoplasma pneumoniae also involves in causing influenza-like illness.Influenza pandemics are a result of the transmission of the virus from birds to humans, or the transfer of such genes to seasonal influenza. Global outbreak caused by a new strain of influenza A virus that contains an antigenically novel hemagglutinin protein, efficiently transmitted from person to person. Due to the lack of immunity in humans against the new virus, serious epidemics can be provoked with high morbidity and mortality rates. The best way of prevention and control is vaccination and antiviral medications.
