Person-to-person transmission is also called human-to-human transmission. This refers to the ability of an influenza (flu) virus to spread from one person to another (instead of from an animal to a person, for example). Seasonal influenza viruses spread easily from person to person, most commonly through large or small droplets containing influenza virus that are expelled when a sick person is coughing or sneezing. Most novel influenza A virusesdo not spread easily.
