HEALTH: Flu Can Infect Many Without Causing Symptoms

 
HEALTH: Flu Can Infect Many Without Causing Symptoms
Posted March 18th, 2014 @ 2:16pm

 

It’s flu season and just because nobody around you is coughing or throwing up doesn’t mean you’re in the clear. Researchers have found that three-quarters of people infected with the flu over the past few years showed no symptoms. That’s right. They were sick. They were contagious. But nobody knew – not even them.

 

Health officials point to the study as a great reason for everyone to get the flu vaccine, as it’s almost impossible to protect yourself against the virus – even when you’re being careful and avoiding everyone you know is sick. (USNews)
