Influenza's Criminal Tactics

The Influenza Virus travels in the air in droplets when someone with the infection sneezes, coughs, or even talks. You can inhale the droplets directly or pick the germs up from an object. When you start showing symptoms, you can be contagious for 5-10 days depending on the severity of the specific strand and your immunity.

It attacks the body by performing the Lytic Cycle. The Virus attaches to a host cell, injects its DNA into it and through Viral Reproduction, it copies itself taking over the Host Cell. It then explods the Host cell and repeats the process on other Host Cells.

Common Victims

  • Young children under 5, and especially those under 2 years
  • Adults older than 65
  • Residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities
  • Pregnant women
  • People with weakened immune systems
  • People who have chronic illnesses, such as asthma, heart disease, kidney disease and diabetes
  • People who are very obese, with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher

Influenza's Hideout

The Influenza Virus hides out in the body fluids of your body such as saliva and mucous.

Injury
