Influenza Specialist Doctor In Mumbai.


Influenza is an acute viral respiratory disease that affects individuals of all ages worldwide. When an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks, virus within respiratory secretions can infect another person if it is inhaled or if it contacts the mucous membranes.

Influenza virus can also be transmitted longer distances through the airborne route and if a person touches a surface contaminated by respiratory secretions and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth.

In tropical and subtropical climates, influenza activity may occur year – round, often peaking during cooler or rainy – season months. The seasonal epidemics are caused by human influenza A and B viruses. In 2009, a novel influenza A virus was first detected in the United States and spread quickly across the world.
