Each genus includes only one species, or type: Influenza A virus, Influenza B virus, and Influenza C virus. Influenza A and C infect multiple species, while influenza B almost exclusively infects humans. Typically, influenza is transmitted from infected mammals through the air by coughs or sneezes, creating aerosols containing the virus, or from infected birds through their droppings. Influenza can also be transmitted by saliva, nasal secretions, feces and blood. Infections occur through contact with these bodily fluids or with contaminated surfaces. Flu viruses can remain infectious for about one week at human body temperature. They can be inactivated easily by disinfectants and detergents.
