Unfortunately, influenza can not be controlled effectively. A number of factors are responsible for insufficient control of this disease. Viral ubiquity and transmissibility, a high spreading rate of the influenza virus, antigenic selection, antiviral treatment etc., are responsible for the control of influenza. The main properties of the influenza virus described in the previous chapters that may influence the control of influenza are listed in this chapter.

Keywords: Control of influenza, Drug resistance, Genetic variability, Influenza virus, Transmission.
