According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention up to 20 percent of people are impacted by the flu every year. Another 15,000 people are hospitalized with bacterial pneumonia or other complications linked to the flu. The World Health Organization estimated that the flu has killed between 250,000 people to 500,000 people each year. The virus is nothing to sneeze at, pardon the pun. People get the flu when the virus travels through droplets in the air. This happens when someone coughs or sneezes. Then these droplets enter a healthy person's lungs and they become infected. You can get the flu from surface areas that are infected like counters and sinks. With kids exposed to God knows what at school or daycare, a parent needs to be extra diligent to remain healthy. Here are 6 ways to not catch your kid's flu.
