FLU Season is Here!

According to the CDC, the flu is a respiratory illness that is a result of coming into contact with the Influenza virus is mostly spread from person to person via droplet transmission. Another words, an infected individual coughs or sneezes near a susceptible person in close contact. You can also become ill from coming in contact with contaminated surfaces. What symptoms does the flu cause? People with the flu will normally have an abrupt onset of cough, muscle aches, fever, fatigue, sore throat and runny nose. Children sometimes also report ear pain, nausea and vomiting. On average, there is a 2 day incubation period, but it can range from 1-4 days. 
 
What can you do to prevent the flu?
 
1.  CDC recommends flu vaccinations yearly.
2.  Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
3.  Hand washing with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
4.  Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
5.  Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
6.  If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.)
7.  While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
 
Complications of flu can include bacterial pneumonia, ear infections, sinus infections, dehydration, and worsening of chronic medical conditions, such as congestive heart failure, asthma, or diabetes.
 
You can go to the CDC website or contact your health provider for further information!

Thanks for your article. It's very unfortunate that over the last decade, the travel industry has had to fight terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, flu virus, swine flu, and the first ever true global economic downturn. Through everthing the industry has proven to be sturdy, resilient as well as dynamic, getting new tips on how to deal with trouble. There are always fresh challenges and chance to which the market must once again adapt and act in response.
