Mia was staying in Egypt for vacation, where there was terrible flu going around. Then suddenly she gets sneezed on by this man and Mia is furious.
Ew did you just sneeze on me!
When Mia got sneezed on, she inhaled droplets of the flu and then she got the flu.
When the droplets were inhaled the mucus caught the virus so that the host wouldn't get it., but eventually the host breathes in the mucus.
First Line of Defense
When the flu enters the body, the immune system produces B cells, which are capable of creating antibodies. These cell receptors are able to bind onto virus particles and reduce the viral spread.
Second Line of Defense
Mia explains to Dr. Rodriguez that she has body aches, runny nose, fever, and sore throat. After some test Dr. Rodriguez confirms that Mia has the flu.
I feel sick Dr. Rodriguez
What is going on Mia?
When the influenza virus infects the cells of the respiratory tract, both innate and adaptive immune responses are stimulated. The innate immune response develops very quickly and controls virus replication during the early stages of infection.
