CLASSIFICATION OF THE INFLUENZA VIRUS:

INFLUENZA - the disease: Influenza (or 'flu) is often considered a relatively benign disease, slightly worse than a cold. In fact, flu has killed millions. Following the famous 1918 outbreak more than 20 million people died. Every year, waves of influenza propagate around the world and we live in fear of a major and lethal type striking again.

INFLUENZA - the name: Influenza is Italian for "influence", Latin: influentia. It used to be thought that the disease was caused by a bad influence from the heavens.
