Have you ever suffered from influenza or the flu? The flu is contagious illness that is caused by  viruses, and it may sometimes even lead to death. The flu usually starts suddenly and may include these symptoms: fever (usually high), headache, cough, sorethroat, runny or stuffy nose, and muscle aches; diarrhea and vomiting can also occur. There are things you can do to prevent the flu. First, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue everytime you sneeze. Do not forget to throw the tissue  away after you use it. Second, frequently wash your hands with soap, especially after you cough or sneeze. Third, try not to touch your nose, eyes, or mouth. Germs are usually spread this way.  Fourth, stay away from people if possible. When you get the flu, stay at home. Do not go to school because other people can get sick too.
What should you do if you have the flu? Eat chicken soup! Chicken soup has been proven to relieve some of the symptoms related with the flu. For a sorethroat, drink either hot fluids or try cool stuff, like popsicles or ice cream. Finally, get some rest. Wait a day after your temperature normal before going back to school.
In english speaking countries, people often get a flu shot before the flu season begins. The flu shot help them be immune to the viruses that cause the flu.
