    Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is an infectious disease of birds and mammals caused by an RNA virus of the family Orthomyxoviridae (the influenza viruses).In people, common symptoms of influenza are fever, sore throat, muscle pains, severe headache, coughing, and weakness and fatigue. In more serious cases, influenza causes pneumonia, which can be fatal, particularly in young children DiseasesDB: There is a large body of observational and clinical trial evidence that shows that influenza vaccination helps protect against AMI. Estimates of the efficacy of influenza vaccination in preventing AMI rank as high as secondary prevention methods routinely recommended for older adults Influenza vaccination: 15% to 45% g: community life.

Community transmission was more frequent than household transmission, both for the Asian influenza pandemic and the influenza B epidemic, implying that community-based countermeasures (eg, area.

Many countries plan to close schools during a future influenza pandemic, although the potential impact is poorly understood. We apply a model of the transmission dynamics of pandemic influenza to consultation, serological and clinical data from the United Kingdom from the (Asian) influenza pandemic, to estimate the basic reproduction number (R 0), the proportion of infected.
