Influenza A/B

Influenza A and B are contagious infections attributed to a filterable virus that affect mainly the nose, throat, bronchi and occasionally the lungs causing fever, cough, sore throat, headache and pain in the back and limbs. The virus is transmitted easily from person to person via droplets and small particles produced when infected people cough or sneeze. Influenza spreads around the world in seasonal epidemics resulting in hundreds of thousands of deaths worldwide annually and millions in pandemic years. Influenza A and B are mainly diagnosed by clinical symptoms, but with the trend of more global outbreaks, the laboratory rapid test has become an much needed tool for screening patients with suspected infections.
