Influenza causes epidemics of disease almost every winter, commonly known as flu it is caused by a virus entering through the eyes, nose or mouth and travelling down into the lungs. Once in the airways the virus multiplies over and over again causing the first symptoms of flu i.e. runny nose, cough, sore throat.
