Flu can be spread just by breathing, says expert
Breathing is enough to pass the flu virus along, according to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The finding shed new light on how the virus is passed, that is, not just through exposure to droplets from an infected person’s cough or sneezes, or touching contaminated surfaces.
The research by San Jose State University and UC Berkeley was done at the University of Maryland during the flu season of December 2012 to March 2013.
