How is the 'flu caught in the first place?


John - Again, we don't know in a great detail. I mean, clearly of course, if you sneeze, then you're producing a lot of virus into the immediate vicinity of you. So, coughing and sneezing -being symptomatic - those symptoms probably do aid the spread of the infection quite a lot. That's why you know, blowing your nose in a tissue and disposing of it properly is a good idea. But in detail, we don't know. It's incredible that we don't know very well but we don't.
