Part of the show Avian Flu, How Flu Spreads and How to Avoid It

Question

Lydia from Hartford asked:

What's the longest period someone has had the flu for?

Answer

It's something like three or four days. In someone your age Lydia, it would probably be four or five days. But we've known people who've had it much longer, maybe even eight, nine or ten days. That's really bad luck though!
