YOU GET OVER THE FLU boots.<quoted text>
The flu is not curable, UIF. Sometimes people will get secondary bacteria infections which can be cured, but the colds and the flus have to run their course. You can only get meds to relieve some of the symptoms. Once you have had a cold or a flu though, you are usually immune to getting the same one again, because your body builds up an immunity to it. However since there are so many different strains, and the existing ones keep mutating, there are always some that people will catch. They now have vaccinations that are being given each year for some of those expected to be particularly bad in any one year, but that is pretty hit and miss too.
it does not always kill people.
and it is not a sexually transmitted disease.
HIV is something you don't get over.
