How are infected with influenza?
Worldwide, about 70% of the number of cases of communicable diseases account for cases flu. And the thing is that the flu virus hasthe ability to quickly engage a large number of people in the infectious process. This phenomenon is called a pandemic. Doctors have concluded that the virus is very contagious, that is, in simple terms - is contagious. From infected people, the virus quickly "jump" to a completely healthy. Therefore, every year and celebrated the influenza epidemic, usually it happens in late winter or early spring. And everything is compounded by the fact that representatives of the virus A, B are able to change, giving rise to a large number of variations of their fellows. Each new variation appeared unique, so our immune system first has to face with a stranger to her "outsider". Those viruses that cause disease in previous seasons, are recognized by our "guardians of order" quite easily and quickly, then immediately blocked. Infected can be anyone, regardless of age. But most of all cases occur in the first groups of children or the elderly. This is understandable - they have a weaker immune response. Once a person has flu, it immediately becomes a source of infection for the people around him - friends, co-workers, classmates, neighbors, companions in transport ... Even if the person's symptoms are mild, so-called latent form of the disease, it can infect anyone who contacts it. Transmitted dangerous viruses through the air currents. The greatest number of pathogenic viruses found in microscopic droplets of mucus, saliva, which inevitably go out when blowing the nose, sneezing, talking, coughing. The virus is very comfortable in the nasopharynx, nose, trachea, it is perfectly replicates in the upper and middle respiratory tract. Once on human mucous membranes, first a virus tries to adhere to the epithelial cells of the respiratory tract, as only then it is directly introduced into these cells. And once the virus manages to get inside, so it releases its ribonucleic acid (a genetic material), so it runs the process of reproduction. In one infected human cell can appear very quickly a million copies of the virus cells! Appeared viral cells rapidly infect other cells in the body. And with a special enzyme viral cells are able to recognize it is quite healthy human cells to infiltrate it there. So, in a few hours after being hit in the body, the virus craftily captures in its power all the respiratory tract. If the virus begins to multiply in the epithelial cells of the alveoli of human lungs, the disease is difficult, it can end in death. And if the virus manages to spread to other organs, it starts complications, such as meningitis, encephalitis, myocarditis ... When failed to establish the mechanisms of human infection with influenza virus, the pharmacologists began to create drugs that can protect people from mass infection in the season, outbreaks and epidemics. One such drug is Oxolinic ointment. Her drug inhibits viral attachment of cells to the epithelium lining the nasal mucosa, resulting in people not sick.
