Pregnant women are vulnerable to influenza infection. Seasonal flu infection is common and the diagnosis is mainly clinical
based. If clinician is not aware of warning symptoms and signs, the seasonal flu infection can lead to serious morbidity and mortality.
Therefore, clinician plays an important role to observe and monitor closely and update oneself with the progress of the disease
process. Simple interventions like hand hygiene, covers coughs and sneezes with isolation will be helpful to prevent the transmission
of the disease.
