Flu epidemic has eased gradually, but 79 new flu cases along with severe deceases last week chalked up a new weekly high this flu season. Of these cases, 64 didn’t receive a vaccine, 11 are dead, at the ages ranging from 44 to 94 all with influenza B, 9 had a history of chronic disease, and 7 didn’t have vaccination protection.

The flu is still active but also abating. New severe cases last week probably have been infected since the lunar holidays so that their conditions got more severe.

The Centers for Disease Control caution that the public shouldn’t ignore the danger of flu. Recently, the temperature has been changing drastically, and students are returning to school for a new semester. It is easy to get flu to spread among frequent human interaction. People should care about their hands’ hygiene, proper manner when coughing, and rest at home if getting sick, to prevent the flu virus from spreading.
