What Are the Symptoms?

Symptoms include fever, cough, muscle soreness and body aches. They can come on suddenly and could cause life-threatening complications such as pneumonia or even death in those with weaker immune systems. In recent weeks, 18 people have died from the flu in Massachusetts, according to reports, leading Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to declare a state of emergency in the city. Twenty-two deaths in Pennsylvania have been reported.
