What Causes Flu?

When an infected person talks, sneezes, or coughs, the flu viruses spread through the air. You can get these germs when you touch an object like a computer keyboard and then touch your face, transferring the germs to your mouth, nose, or eyes. You can also breathe in droplets in the air.

The symptoms of the flu can include:

  • Nasal congestion or running nose
  • Sneezing
