Although there are regional differences, cases of the flu begin to pick up around October, peak in December through February, and can last until May, says Natasha Bhuyan, M. FRIDAY, March 23, 2018 (HealthDay News) It’s been a particularly tough flu season, but spring and real relief may be near, new numbers show. The flu season continues to wind. FluSight.

Flu activity will likely increase over the next four weeks and the highest flu activity will likely occur in the next two months. There is about a 70% chance that the highest flu activity for this season will occur by the end of January and a greater than 95% chance that the highest flu activity will occur by the end of February. By Steven Reinberg HealthDay Reporter. TUESDAY, April 12, 2016 (HealthDay News) This year’s flu season may not quite be over, but it’s clearly winding down and will be recorded as a relatively mild one, U.S. health officials say.. That’s a far cry from the 2014-2015 flu season, which was a particularly early and nasty one.

Last year, flu was severe, especially for people aged 65 and older. BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) The flu season is still a few months away, but countries in the Southern Hemisphere are nearing the end of theirs with cases so low in some countries, doctors described it as a “non-season.” According to data from the. The flu is significantly less deadly than the coronavirus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but it is so widespread that the CDC says that influenza has resulted in. A Mild Flu Season, and the End Is in Sight: CDC TUESDAY, April 12, 2016 (HealthDay News) This year’s flu season may not quite be over, but it’s clearly winding down and will be recorded as a relatively mild one, U.S. health officials say. That’s a far cry from the 2014-2015 flu season, which was a particularly early and nasty one.

With more than 24 million known infections worldwide and a death toll inching closer to 1 million every day, it may seem like the end is nowhere in sight. Many countries are already experiencing a. In the United States, flu season occurs in the fall and winter. While influenza viruses circulate year-round, most of the time flu activity peaks between December and February, but activity can last as late as May.

The overall health impact (e.g., infections, hospitalizations, and deaths) of a flu season varies from season to season. Feb. 25, 2019 This year’s flu season hasn’t been as severe as last year’s, but it may not have peaked yet, public health officials say.

So, if you dutifully got your flu shot in the fall, will.

In a normal flu season (November to April) some 100,000 people are hospitalized in the United States with influenza, and about 20,000 die from it and its complications (mainly secondary pneumonia).

Every year, one or more new strains of the virus appear and quickly spread around the globe during the flu season, which usually runs from late fall through the winter.

But it’s curious to me that this epidemic coincides with the beginning of America’s nonstop feast and holiday season, which starts with Thanksgiving and continues on through New Year’s Day, by which time an enormous number of people have been stricken by the flu bug.

This means that, for the time being, perhaps flu can best be fought with lifestyle and behavioral changes that limit the opportunities for flu to make the leap from animals to humans.

In the United States, the “flu season” usually runs from November through April each year,1 and the company’s inventory levels need to be sufficient to meet the demand for vaccines, which usually ramps up beginning in late September.

  • I disagree,
    does anybody know anybody who has died of the flu? I know a lot of people have received the flu and gotten sick and gotten over it but I don’t know anybody who has died from it and neither do you and neither does anybody else you know. Why? Because nobody dies from the flu anymore, except for the old or very compromised it’s a lie that over a hundred thousand or two hundred thousand people die every year from the flu. If this was true you would know somebody who had died from the flu. Its…justin sane

  • You’d have to be insane to take A flu shot, the makers of vaccines have no liability under the law. Why not instead supplement your diet with vitamin D, the real reason there is a flu season in the first place

  • CDC IS CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION Chief Vaccine Control Officer tells the truth
    John Anthony Morris, MD, a bacteriologist and virologist had a distinguished career researching viral and respiratory diseases at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) from 1940s to 1976. In the mid-1950s NIH assigned him to investigating vaccines and their risk factors, and in 1959, Dr. Morris was recruited by FDA’s Division of Biologics (DBS) to be Chief Vaccine Control Officer to conduct research about influenza, as a heated controversy was brewing within the public health community about the efficacy of the first flu vaccine.

    High level officials argued for mass vaccination against the flu and common cold: Dr. Morris was charged with validating their view. However, after
    conducting extensive tests on the effectiveness of the flu vaccine, Dr. Morris was alarmed at what he found. First, it was impossible to measure
    the actual strength of the vaccine — regardless of its stated potency on the label. Ant studies he had one on elderly people showed that if
    they derived a benefit it was so small that it could not be reliably measured. Furthermore, the vaccine did not produce antibodies in the
    lungs and mucus membranes where an infection starts. His studies raised concerns about the vaccine’s side effects.

    After completing his studies in 1972, Dr. Morris reported his concerns to DBS officials who retaliated in no uncertain terms: his research materials were
    confiscated, locks on his laboratory were changed, his laboratory staff were reassigned elsewhere, and his efforts to publish his findings were
    blocked. DBS further harassed Dr. Morris, assigning him to a small room with no telephone: anyone who wished to see him had to get permission
    from the chief of the laboratory. Dr. Morris learned the hard way that “There is a close tie between government scientists and manufacturing
    scientists. And my results were hurting the market for flu vaccines.”

    By sweeping the scientific evidence out of sight, over 20 million doses of flu vaccine were being sold in the US by 1970 — it became one of the
    largest selling vaccines. The same year, DBS fired Dr. Morris for blowing the whistle on the ineffectiveness and hazards of the “Swine
    Flu” vaccine, and publicly stated:

    “There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine, thus far developed, is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these
    [influenza] vaccines know they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway…. It’s a medical rip-off… I believe the public
    should have truthful information on the basis of which they can determine whether or not to take the vaccine.” And he adds, “I believe that, given full information, they won’t take the vaccine.” (The Washington Post, 1979)

    Dr. Morris then instituted a wrongful dismissal suit. The grievance committee unanimously found that Dr. Morris had been harassed by his superiors. The “case” against him included accusations such as failure to return library books on time. The case dragged on for years. Despite the fact that all charges against him were overturned, his professional reputation had been badly damaged.

    Dr. Morris was determined to clear his name publicly. With his lawyer, James Turner,* he drew up a detailed memorandum showing “dubious techniques” used to test the flu vaccine and charging that NIH and DBS officials had “tampered” with the test results. They also identified other scientists who had been forced to leave DBS when their research findings might have affected a vaccine market.

    Dr. Morris gave a copy of the memorandum to Senator Abe Ribicoff of Connecticut, who initiated a General Accounting Office (GAO) investigation. Its findings concurred with some of Dr. Morris’s criticism about the significant misrepresentation of the flu vaccine’s effectiveness. Hearings were held by the Senate Subcommittee on Executive Reorganization and Government Research Committee on Government Operations were held on April 20, 21 and May 2, 4 1972)

    Dr. Morris’ research found that: in children, the vaccine often induced fever; in pregnant women it could harm the fetus. Furthermore, because the vaccine was “literally loaded with extraneous bacteria” the flu vaccine put everyone at risk of harm.
