Recovering From the Flu

Final Thoughts

Most people who get the flu recover completely in 1 to 2 weeks, but some people develop serious and possibly life-threatening complications. While your body is busy fighting off the flu, you may be less able to resist a second infection.

In an average year, the flu leads to about 20,000 deaths nationwide and many more hospitalizations.
