  • Description:
    The FLU (INFLUENZA) is a common contagious respiratory illness caused by flu viruses. The flu is different from a cold. Flu can cause mild to severe illness and complications, such as pneumonia, which can can sometimes lead to death.

    ZIKA VIRUS DISEASE (ZIKA) is less common than flu. Zika is caused by the Zika virus. People with Zika usually don’t get sick enough to go to the hospital, and they very rarely die from Zika. However, the virus can cause severe birth defects when a pregnant woman is infected. Zika is also associated with Guillain-Barré syndrome.
