Many believe that the pain suffered during this time because it is. In fact, when examined transmission of the disease is the main source of contact and no contact transmission of pain around 1-2 days in advance.

Immune factors are also an important factor, because although there is human contact can avoid the flu or at least mild symptoms that we ever realize. If there is no contact and source of flu transmission will not occur because the virus will not be flying in the air area, like on the road, in extensive air and wind tertipup by great distances.

FLU, influenza or other respiratory tract infections

Influenza, commonly referred to as the flu or respiratory infections due to other virus, an infectious disease caused primarily by the Orthomyxoviridae family of RNA viruses that affects birds and mammals.

Air contaminated with this virus can cause infection mostly considered, however, modes of transmission of air into the body remains unclear. Influenza viruses can be inactivated / killed by sunlight, disinfectants and detergents. Viruses can also be killed by soap; frequent hand washing reduces the risk of infection.

We never realized that the infected respiratory tract infection because of contact around the patient. Often do not realize that adult humans also often experience pain flu virus or other viral infections. But in some adults when exposed to very mild symptoms and are often mistaken for a cold, or heat exhaustion.

Complaints virus infection in the elderly include headache, body aches and pains, sore throat. In adults with good durability, it only lasted a complaint within 1-2 days.
