About Influenza
Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is an acute respiratory infection that is very contagious. In a typical flu season, between 5 to 10% of the world's population (300 to 600 million people) is infected. Influenza epidemics typically occur during the winter months and are responsible for as many as 200,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths a year in the United States alone. Influenza viruses may also cause a "pandemic", during which rates of illness and death from influenza-related complications can increase dramatically worldwide. Since the influenza virus tends to mutate constantly, it is very difficult to treat. There is no effective cure. Therefore, vaccination is the only effective defense against outbreaks of influenza.
