Flu is also called influenza. It is a respiratory disease caused by a virus. It is highly contagious and you may be infected before you realize you are affected. There are 4 types of viruses which causes flu. They are A, B, C and D. The A and B virus causes the seasonal flu whereas the C virus is rare and causes respiratory illness. There is nothing much to worry about D virus as it mainly affects cattle.
