Secondary bacterial infections are bacterial infections that occur in individuals that have already been diagnosed with a viral infection. In these cases, someone may be sick with the flu but symptoms seem to last longer than they should. Pneumonia, ear infections, and sinusitis are common kinds of secondary bacterial infections. Indications that one of these may have occurred include prolonged symptoms (beyond the 14 days viruses tend to last), a higher fever than expected, and a fever that gets worse rather than improves after a few days of illness.
