Influenza or commonly known as flu, is an infectious disease caused by  RNA virus. Symptoms of this disease are usually fever, muscle aches, cough, headache, and discomfort in the body. Unpredictable weather changes like today make the body's immunity decrease and cause the body easily contracted flu virus.

Although the disease is fairly mild, but lately, a number of countries such as America, China, and Hong Kong were hit by a fairly serious flu epidemic. As quoted from Detik.com, the number of people suffering from flu outbreak this year has equaled the swine flu phenomenon in 2009 and surpassed the highest seasonal flu epidemic in history in 2003.
