Goodbye flu season, for now

Goodbye flu season, for now

Now that summer has unofficially begun, the Centers for the Disease Control and Prevention is closing the books on the past flu season.

Anyone who got the flu during the 2011/2012 influenza season might disagree, but according to the CDC, the past flu season "began late and was mild compared to most previous seasons" for which they have data.

According to the CDC statement, this latest flu season set a new record for having the lowest and shortest peak for flu-like illness since the agency started keeping track.

"This is the first time since CDC started this kind of influenza-like-surveillance (ILI) that the percentage of patient visits for ILI was elevated for only one week of the season," said Dr. Joseph Bresee, chief of the Epidemiology and Prevention Branch of the CDC's Influenza Division, in a statement on the CDC website.

Usually, the number of people getting sick is above baseline and lasts an average of 13 weeks during a flu season, according to the CDC, which started tracking this in 1997.

Health officials say only 26 children have died from the flu during this past flu season, the lowest number since the CDC started tracking this as well.

A mild winter, similar flu viruses circulating as in the previous years and "steadily increasing influenza vaccination coverage in the country" might have all contributed to keeping the number of reported flu cases low.

Flu season usually peaks in January or February, and most people get the flu between November and April, health officials say. So we're really only about five months away from the next one.

    Can I simply say what a comfort to discover somebody that genuinely understands what they are discussing on the net. You definitely know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people really need to look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you aren't more popular given that you certainly possess the gift.

All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something that you can fix if you were not too busy seeking attention.
