How serious is the flu?

Page last updated 24 May 2018

Influenza can be a mild condition for some people – a few days in bed with aches and pains, a sore throat and a fever. However, this is not the case for everyone. For others, it can cause some very serious complications. For people with chronic conditions such as asthma or congestive heart failure, influenza can make these conditions much worse.
