"The flu, a.k.a. influenza, is a respiratory infection caused by strains of orthomyxoviridae. The word 'influenza' comes from the Italian word for influence - back when the stars were thought to influence the start of an epidemic! Every year 5%-40% of the population gets the flu. Fortunately, most people recover completely in a couple of weeks. Even more fortunately, since there are only about a dozen different flu viruses, vaccines have been developed that can be up to 90% effective in preventing infection in the first place." -- Tag
