Posted September 23, 2020 8:30:56As the flu season hits the U.S. with an expected peak of 4,300 to 5,000 cases per day, it has the potential to affect many lives, from healthcare workers and hospital staff to those who are taking antibiotics to the elderly and those who might not be able to care for themselves.
The flu season begins September 23 and runs through November 1, 2019.
The number of cases and deaths during the flu seasons is increasing and can be difficult to measure, but a study published last month in the journal Epidemiology and Community Health found that while the average number of people dying from the flu in 2019 was 13, the actual number of deaths was over 2,000.
So how does the flu compare to other epidemics?
It’s hard to compare flu seasons from year to year.
That’s because we only have a very short time frame to compare each season.
In 2019, there were over 4,000 deaths from the influenza, and in 2020 there were more than 1,000 more.
The number of new cases per year also depends on the type of flu strain, the flu-like symptoms, the number of days with flu-associated deaths and the number and severity of infections.
But there are important differences in how flu season is defined and how the flu pandemic is monitored.
For starters, flu season generally doesn’t have to start until September.
In 2019, most people were vaccinated, but in 2020, the vaccine has been extended through October.
The new season also begins with a much shorter window for flu infections to become dangerous.
In 2018, it was about seven days for influenza infections to cause serious complications.
In 2020, that window is less than 24 hours.
This means that people who are infected with influenza early on are less likely to contract serious complications, but they can still die.
In some cases, those who have been infected are treated with a flu shot and are able to return to work or school.
So it’s important to consider the timing of the flu vaccine when deciding how much time to spend with family and friends, said Katherine O’Brien, assistant professor of epidemiology and community health at the University of Washington in Seattle.
The flu season ends on November 1 in the United States.
The first wave of the season began in September and ended in October.
In the United Kingdom, flu seasons typically end on March 1, April 1 and May 1.
In Canada, flu epidemics end on October 1 and April 1, with the last wave ending in November.
The CDC has estimated that the flu vaccination campaign has reduced the number to about 14,000 per day in 2019 and about 6,500 per day for 2020.
But the numbers will only get worse as the flu evolves and becomes more widespread.
There is no flu vaccine available to the general public, so the CDC has made sure people stay away from the areas with the highest flu activity.
In other words, if you live in a city with high flu activity, avoid driving or riding a bike in public.
Also, don’t go to the doctor during the influenza season.
In fact, most doctors don’t even consider the flu a serious illness until people start getting sick.
