The flu is a contagious disease caused by a virus that spreads from one person to another by the shaking of hands, and from the spray from coughs and sneezes that lingers in the air for hours.  The flu is most common in winter months because of the dry air and how quickly it can spread through the body’s respiratory tract.  Symptoms start to appear from 1-4 days after contact, and can last from 4 to 10 days depending on the treatment you seek.
