©SHRM What is the flu? Flu is caused by a virus Viruses can not be “cured” with antibiotics When people get viruses, they often get “secondary infections” like pneumonia, which can be very serious Vaccines can stop people from getting a bad case of a virus Vaccines can only be created when a virus has been “identified” Viruses change or mutate which makes the development of a vaccine a challenge
©SHRM The ABC’s of flu Influenza A Has many hosts – especially wild birds – sometimes called bird or avian, could cause a pandemic (world wide illness) Influenza B Only makes humans sick, some epidemics, no pandemics Influenza C Mild illness, no epidemics
©SHRM Why is it called “bird flu?” Most flu viruses come from birds Practice good hygiene precautions at all times, but especially when around birds Wash hands after touching areas that might have bird feces Exercise caution when disposing of dead birds Notify authorities if you observe a large number of “sick” birds
