Seasonal flu is a highly infectious viral illness of the respiratory tract that can be life threatening in people with long term medical conditions, those aged 65 years and over, and pregnant women. Flu symptoms come on suddenly with a fever, muscle aches, headaches and fatigue. A cold is usually a less severe illness, that starts gradually with a sore throat and a blocked or runny nose and is usually mild compared to the flu.
