  • How is influenza transmitted between people?

    A major new study will further uncover how the influenza virus is transmitted between people.
    The Evaluating Modes of Influenza Transmission (EMIT) study will see researchers administer flu virus to people in a quarantined setting, enabling them to further examine how influenza is transmitted from person to person, potentially impacting on how the spread of illness is prevented in the future.

    The study is being led by the Health Protection and Influenza Research Group (HPIRG) at The University of Nottingham , which focuses on influenza transmission. The group will also coordinate the efforts of the EMIT Consortium which is a group of partners from the UK, the USA, Australia and Canada.
